A wealth of loan options for the experience of a lifetime

Going to business school is a big investment in your future, both academically and financially.


Most of our students get some kind of financial help, in the form of scholarships, sponsorship or loans. There are many organisations that lend to London Business School students. Some are open to all students, and others are dependent on an individual’s situation, such as nationality, financial status or likely future earnings. Some require co-signers, others don’t.

We strongly encourage you to look at all of your options as soon as you can, to be fully aware of what you can apply for. Our funding search tool is a good place to start. There may be other options for you too – it’s impossible for us to know about all of them – so do your own research as well. For instance, there might be government loans available to you in your home country.

Explore our degree programmes and find out more about the financial and time commitments of each one.
