Thousands of students from over 150 universities think it’s common sense. Check out our quick guide to Future Finance student loans.
Our loans are smart
We don’t just base our lending decisions on credit scores. Clever technology looks at your course, university and much more to project your potential future earnings and then determine your repayment rates.
Loan repayments reflect your life stage
We offer loans for up to 5 years that fit with your changing priorities and circumstances.
Undergraduate: Money is a little tight and you want to focus on your degree. Our repayments are lower, and capped at £75 per month, while you study.
Graduate: Need to take a breath before beginning your career? Your repayments stay lower for three months after you graduate.
First jobber: You can take up to four repayment holidays (3-month breaks) during a 5-year loan term. Handy when you’re saving for big purchases early in your career.
Career climber: When your finances are comfortable, you can repay early without paying a penalty.
