How to manage your funds with an education loan?

Posted by Shyamoli Shah on October 20th, 2016

Pursuing higher studies is something that every parent wishes for their kids, but due to lack of financial assets it becomes quite tough to go for the desired study program. People often take up a loan in a jiffy when in need of financial aid, but do not have the slightest idea on how to repay it back effectively.

  • Go through all the minor details related to your education loan. Make sure to have a glance at the terms and conditions so that you do not have to face any issues at the time of the repayment.

  • Ask the lender about all the repayment options available with him. Paying a higher monthly sum ay help you decrease cost of the total loan amount.

  • Choose a university/college that provides high job placement after completion of the course so that you can begin the repayment as soon as you get out of college. If not, have a clear repayment strategy in mind as to what can be done after the course to earn sufficient money to repay the debt.

  • You can even start paying the debt when you are still in college, if it is convenient to you.This is called partial interest servicing. Normally, repayment begins after the day you take up the loan, but lenders offer a grace period of maximum 1 year, so that the borrower can secure a relevant job during this time.

  • Borrowers can even pay more than their estimated EMI as the amount other than the EMI will be applied directly towards the principal amount of the debt. This may give you some kind of relief in the total principal education loan sum along with the interest.

  • Never forget to pay your monthly installments on time as a single unpaid amount will reflect on your credit score. Negative credit history will reduce the chances of availing any kind of loans in the future.

  • Acquire all the details from the lender regarding grace periods before availing the loan.The grace period begins as soon as you finish your course and are usually for 6 to 12 months.

  • Automatic direct debit from your bank account is a very convenient, safe and secure option to opt for so that you never miss out on any of your EMIs.

Following the above points will help you repay the loan with maintaining a balance between your monthly income ad your savings.

Before giving up on your goals just because of insufficient capital, always try considering an education loan to avail enough fundings. It has become comparatively easy to find out lenders within your locality that suit your budget and offer loan schemes as per your requirements.Unlike the past, no borrower has to meet the lender in person to avail an education loan. All he/she has to do is, browse through the relevant websites of various lenders and shortlist the ones that are suitable. Apart from financing your academic fees, a loan will also help cover expenditures such as travel (in case of an abroad loan) and accommodation (hostel and mess) charges, cost of books/laptops, cost of instruments/apparatus, library charges, etc.
