Loans for international students (UK). Please help!!
I'm growing more and more desperate. I got my admission offer from a target university in the UK for a MSc in Finance. Full disclosure: I got decent scholarship amounts (university scholarships, grants, country specific scholarships etc) that eliminated ~60% of tuition. The remaining amount is mainly for deposits (which are pretty high, and my offer will be revoked without paying them on time). Other funds are for living costs obviously
Unfortunately, my country (unholy 3rd world) doesn't allow me to take loans for studying abroad. For some reason students who plan to go abroad are held in such crippling animosity here, and viewed as some kind of "traitors."
I am out of solutions. I tried to get a bank guarantee through a financial planner to get a regular loan, but no UK bank is accepting it. I tried future finance and they only give loans to residents (and mind you, I will need funds to get a student). Prodigy finance explicitly said they couldn't fund deposits or living costs. I tried everything, and I'm officially left with no hand. I'm starting to think I should just give up on my dreams, nothing will work. But I worked so hard to get here (passing CFA L1&2 in the 90th percentile, in the 97th percentile..etc).
Is there anything I can do? Any loan providers for international students?
Should I just give up?
