In addition to governmental student loan schemes, UK home students can also apply for financial support in terms of scholarships as well as some additional grants and allowances provided by the government and universities. Learn more about scholarships and grants using the link below –

There are several resources of financial aids available for international students, but we can divide them into three main categories –
UK demonstrates a higher commitment to offering optimal conditions for study maintaining a rich scheme of student loans. But, if you are a non-EU student it’s unlikely you will find a student loan in UK granted by the governmental authorities.
The only option left to you is the university of your choice. Universities are allowed to establish their own student loan schemes for talented students, including those coming here from other countries than EU countries. For this, we highly suggest you contact your university and see if they run a student loan scheme on their own and ask what are the terms and conditions.
A second chance for you can be the financial resources in your home country. Often education authorities support students abroad by awarding student loans or similar grants. If there are no funds you can ask private companies to provide funds to study in UK while giving them something in reward. Commonly, such a reward can be a repayment with an interest rate or an agreement which obligates you to return home after graduation and work in that company for a certain time period.
Scholarships are a good resource for financial aid for international students in the UK. There’s a wide range of them and chances are higher you are going to find something suitable. Look at scholarships page for more details –
Aside from the scholarships and student loans, private grants are another alternative resource of financial aid for international students in the UK. Often there are companies or non-governmental organisations that are ready to finance your education in the UK.
You can ask them for these much-coveted funds either in the form of loans or charitable funds. If you take a loan you can sign a certain agreement that defines the time limit within which you must give your money back or the method how this is going to be done.
More often than not, companies are ready to help students in the UK under the condition that they will come back to work for them once they get their degree. In such a scenario, it’s a win-win situation for both of you: you get your university degree in the UK while the company hires an exceptional employee.
