Study Medicine Europe is capable of helping students secure student loans through its decade-long collaboration with financial institutions that cooperate with your chosen academic institution, and gathers and submits in person all the necessary documents on behalf of its students.
Based on Study Medicine Europe’s long years of collaboration, experience and local credibility abroad, our permanently based representatives in the cities of your academic institution can also negotiate the type of loan, the duration of the loan, the maximum amount of the loan, the interest rate of the loan repayment and in some cases even the grace period before repayment as well as the repayment period itself, which are invariably in the local language.
Best of all, we guarantee that you get a loan not only because of our credibility in local financial institutions abroad, but also because we can act as a guarantor and co-sign your loan.
All Undergraduate (Bachelor’s), Graduate (Master’s) and Postgraduate (PhD) students are eligible to apply for a student loan, whether they are Bulgarian nationals or nationals of another EU member state, including the Swiss Confederation, as long as they are applying to a full-time programme in which they have not acquired the same educational qualification or degree before and are in good academic standing.
Student Loans available to applicants cover both tuition fees and living expenses for the remaining period of training of the student, according to the curriculum of the respective specialty and the educational qualification or educational degree the student is pursuing and are received and utilized through money transfers automatically by the financial institution to the bank account of the higher institution or the scientific organization or as monthly allowances equal to the minimum salary level.
The repayment of either type of loan includes an annual, fixed interest rate. Students need not repay the loan while they are still studying, and enjoy a grace period of approximately twelve to twenty four months after their study period finishes, before they are required to begin repayments. Moreover, students who have taken out a loan are not obliged to pay the fees, commissions or other expenses, related to the granting and management of the loan.
