Lendwise loan

The University of Buckingham has partnered with private “peer-to-peer” student loan company Lendwise as an alternative source of funding for your studies if you need more than you can secure from a government loan and your own resources

What can the loan be used for?

Lendwise loans are primarily for tuition fees although, in certain circumstances, a small portion of the overall loan can be for personal expenses. Tuition fee loans will be paid directly to the University of Buckingham and any personal expenses amount will be paid directly to you.

What are the features of Lendwise loans?

    • Loans are offered from £3,000 up to £100,000
    • Loans are repayable over a term of up to 10 years
    • A parental guarantee is not required
    • Competitive interest rate, personalised to your profile
    • No penalties, fees or charges for repaying your loan early

    Full details of eligibility requirements, interest rates and other key terms of the loan are available by visiting the University of Buckingham page on the Lendwise website.

Who can apply?

The key eligibility criteria for students or prospective students of the University of Buckingham are that you be studying at postgraduate level or be in the third or later year of a medical degree. You must also be a permanent resident in the UK. You can apply up to six months before your studies start – even before you have accepted a place – or when you are at the University.

How do I apply?

You can apply directly on the Lendwise website – the application process is entirely online. Be sure to read the terms to make sure you understand the commitment you would be making.

Please note that other sources of funding may be available.
