The exact amount that you will be lending is determined based on your needs. Our student loans come with a flexible repayment term that is a major benefit for you as a new student.

While you, our client, is busy studying full time, you will only be required to pay the interest in the form of a monthly instalment. Once you have graduated, you will have 15 years to repay the balance of the loan that you received for each year of studying.

The total amount that you should repay will consist of the principal amount and any outstanding interest on the account. It is important to bear in mind that you will need to apply for finance online or at a branch for every year that you were at varsity.

Secured loan options

In order for a student to qualify for a student loan, they would need to provide us with security. This is usually an income earner such as one of your parents or your guardian, who will be responsible for paying the loan while the student is studying. The person who takes this on in the form of security, would be required to meet the bank’s lending requirements in order for the loan to be processed.
