Types of loans for school fees

Personal loan: with this kind of loan, you have the option of borrowing a sum ranging anywhere from £1,000 up to £35,000 in total, and repayments are made over a minimum of 12 months and can last for over 7 years, which is perfect if you are looking to find a loan to cover school fees and looking to repay gradually.

What are the benefits?

school-feesPersonal loans fall into the unsecured category, which simply means that you do not have to secure the loan against things like your car or your property, meaning that in the event that you are unable to keep up with repayments you do not have to worry about potentially losing your home.

In addition, you will most likely have fixed payments agreed upon with one of our money lenders that you will pay back each month. When it comes to loans for school fees this can be particularly advantageous, as it means that you are able to budget effectively as you will be aware of what you are paying each month, and do not have to worry about any sudden surprises.

You will also find that the longer that you have the loan, the lower the interest rates will end up being.

What are the criteria for applying/

If you are considering applying for a loan for school fees and want to take out a personal loan in particular, then you will need to make sure that you fit the following eligibility criteria:

  • I am employed and have an income that is over £15,000 per year
  • I have a good credit history
  • I am over the age of 24

Your acceptance for this particular type of loan will be dependent on how highly you score on these criteria, in part because you are not putting down valuables as collateral in order to get it.

You will find that some things may work against you getting this type of loan for school fees, these include having a history of defaults, CCJs and bankruptcy.

What if I have a bad credit score?

You may be wondering what to do if you have read the personal loan eligibility criteria and realised that you might not have a high chance of getting approved for a loan for school fees. No need to fret, Proper Finance definitely has other options available to you! It may be worth investigating more about getting a guarantor loan instead if you have a bad credit score. With this kind of loan, your guarantor (which can be a family member or friend: but it is worth noting they will need to be deemed creditworthy by the lender) will secure the loan for you, as they will be relied upon in the event that you are unable to keep up with loan repayments.
