I have a couple of questions

1. Does interest accumulate while we study? Or will it be frozen until after graduation?
2. Is it possible to get a quote before applying for a loan?

Hello, I want to avail a loan from prodigy. Wanted to know about the following :
Does prodigy finance lend for living expenses as well ?
Is there a penalty or foreclosure charge if during the tenure of loan I switch to another lender ?

What are the bankruptcy proceedings if someone defaults (not able to repay due to financial difficulties) on Prodigy Finance loans?

Yes, you can get money for the full Tuition + Living expenses, though you may only get 80% of the total package (which will at least equate to the full tuition cost)
The % of total financing you get and whether you get living expenses somewhat depends on the school.

P.S. I do not think the loan carries a pre-payment penalty per Prodigy's info here: https://support.prodigyfinance.com/hc/e ... oan-early- but you still want to read the T&C of the specific offer/loan you are applying for.

It seems like a valid question and I am trying to figure out what are the actual consequences.

Thank you very much, bb. Everyone has a right to know the downside. If Prodigy Finance people make it more transparent, it would be great help to the community.
Of course, I don't want to reveal my identity plus I don't see an option to post anonymously.

I have a small query regarding Prodigy Loan options, do they cover living expenses or cost of attendance in Europe also or that option is only valid for B-schools of US/Canada.

someone kindly shed some light on this.

It depends on the school. You can quickly check on their website for a specific school you have in mind.

thanks, bb for the reply, I guess they cover living cost only for US/Canadian B-school, any idea how an Indian Student cover living cost/ cost of attendance if his MBA program is in London specifically Cass Business school.

I have question regarding prodigy loan.
My question is in my case prodigy covers the tuition cost of school which is around 31000 EUR but inorder to apply for prodigy loan I already need to book the seat which costs 7000 EUR from my savings. Since the balance amount remains 24000 EUR....prodigy will still pay 31000 EUR to the school so what happens to the additional 7000 EUR given to the school.

1. Prodigy Finance's interest rate uses the simple interest formula, meaning that the interest rate does not compound throughout the life of the loan*. The interest rate is variable, and is made up of two components:
- a fixed margin, determined by Prodigy Finance
- a variable base rate, we use 3-month LIBOR as the base rate.
In addition to the interest rate, there is an admin fee for each loan we issue. The maximum admin fee is 5% of the total loan amount. This fee is added to your loan amount when the loan is issued and spread across your monthly payments - you're never required to pay this fee upfront.

2. Hi there. Before applying, you'll need to check if you are eligible:
1. You must be applying to study your masters abroad.
2. You must apply to study at a school we support. We support over 800 schools globally and you can see the full list here: https://prodigyfinance.com/eligibility-schools/
3. You must come from a country or state we support. For the list of regions that aren't eligible for a loan, you can have a look here: https://support.prodigyfinance.com/hc/e ... t-lend-to-
If you meet these 3 criteria, you may apply online for a quote, here: https://prodigyfinance.com/student-loans

If you’d like to find out more about Prodigy Finance or have any questions about the application process, you can head over to our detailed FAQ page: https://support.prodigyfinance.com/hc/en-us
We hope this helps
