    Take care

    If you're considering applying for a loan, look carefully at the repayment commitment asked of you. Lenders ordinarily base their decisions and subsequent loan amounts on students' income and repayment capacity. Most lenders require some personal contribution and will provide a loan for part of your course costs only. Funding is not guaranteed as decisions are discretionary.
