Student loans

We understand that funding your postgraduate studies at Edinburgh might require significant financial investment. That’s why we encourage you to explore all possible funding options, which can include, in order of affordability: scholarships, self-financing, any government-backed loan funding and/or external loan providers.

A number of options are available for student loan funding, including government-backed ones, for both UK/EU nationals and overseas students. Some further information can be found by visiting the University’s Scholarships and Student Funding Services student loan page.

Prodigy Finance is one example of an external loan provider. Prodigy Finance's model offers loans to international students using a predictive scorecard that considers future potential. Details of their scheme are available on their website. 150 nationalities are eligible and you do not need a UK guarantor or collateral.

Unlike many government-backed student loan arrangements worldwide, repayments on a Prodigy loan will become due six months after graduation irrespective of employment status (including further studies e.g. progressing to a PhD).

Information on loan providers is provided here for information purposes only. All loan applications and loan agreements are the sole responsibility of the individual borrower.
