What are tuition fee loans?

A tuition fee loan is money you can borrow from the financial institutions like banks to cover the cost of your course.

Eligible students can borrow up to the full cost of their course. Where you live, your age , your family background and the course you intend to take can affect whether you can get a loan. The majority of Indian students are eligible, but if you have taken a degree previously or are not ordinarily resident in India, please check with the bank you are applying to in order to double-check.

Please note that if you have previously taken a course at the same or a higher level, you are not usually eligible for a loan but may still be able to apply for other funding.

Leading financial institutions in India provide funding for up to 95% of the programme expenses to NIMT admits. The amount you borrow depends on the cost of your course.

Loan is granted to Indian Nationals for pursuing higher education in India where admission has been secured.

If you want to be admitted in August of admission year you should apply for student finance online from mid or preferably early in the year.

  • Completed Education Loan Application Form.
  • Mark sheets of last qualifying examination
  • Proof of admission scholarship, studentship etc
  • Schedule of expenses for the specified course
  • 2 passport size photographs
  • PAN Card of the student and the Parent/ Guardian

Your tuition fee loan is paid directly to the college at which you have accepted a admission so you don’t have to worry about fees on your first day. You must although remember to register and inform the college about the sanctioned loan details.

What you pay depends on how much you earn not how much you owe, so if you are unemployed or a low earner once you’ve graduated don’t worry. 

Usually repayment will commence one year after completion of course or 6 months after securing a job, whichever is earlier.

Also usually If the student is not able to complete the course within the scheduled time, extension of time for completion of course may be permitted for a maximum period of 2 years.

Under section 80(e) of the Indian income tax act, a person can exempt the amount paid against the interest of the education loan – either for self or for his/her spouse or children – for eight years from the year (s)he starts to repay the loan or for the duration the loan is in effect, whichever is more.
