Loan options for US citizen going to foreign school? [#permalink] New post 05 Dec 2009, 11:14
Hey All,

I'm heading to HEC next year, and am wondering if anyone can provide some additional insight on US loans. I'm a US citizen and it looks like the Stafford loan is the only one the school participates in. The max for unsubsidized (not need-based) is only $12500 a year and if the school requires payment upfront in 2010, how is it possible to get another year's worth?

Is that plus a private loan my only option?

Any current students from the US willing to add their two cents?

Whatever the school offers is generally your best bet. As an example, LBS also offers the GradPlus loan program in addition to Stafford. Sometimes the school's own loan schemes are better as well.

Private loans are typically the last option.

I think Govt. will give some fund for it. They student who want better studies with their subjects must go to the origin of the subject. Beside the Govt. you knock the loan companies here for very easy agreement and good police loans for students.
