Paying for studying abroad

Get started

Make the most of your budget as an international student

Whether you wish to see the world, take in a new culture or hone your language skills, there are many reasons why studying abroad can be one of the most exciting and rewarding decisions you can take. However, when it comes to paying for your overseas tuition, ensuring your money goes further can make all the difference.

 

An alternative to high UK tuition fees

With tuition fees and living costs in some parts of the UK amongst the highest in the world, it is no wonder that more and more students choose to move abroad. 

If you decide to make the big move and start studying abroad, our team of experts are on hand to help you manage your tuition payments and to get the most from your money, leaving you more time to enjoy the experience.

 

Paying overseas tuition fees

While overseas universities can charge lower fees than UK universities, the bills still need to be paid and without a student loan available, it’s important to make the most of every penny of your budget. We know that for students even the smallest amount can make a big difference, and with moneycorp you can exchange your money with a competitive rate and low transaction fees.

If your course requires a year’s placement abroad, you’ll need to exchange a portion of your student loan for currency to cover living costs, and it’s worth making sure you get the most from your money so you can concentrate on your studies.

Regular payments can be set up over the phone for making payments on a weekly, monthly or quarterly basis. This allows you to pay for your student accommodation or any other living expenses with ease.

The option is also there for a forward contract, which allows you to lock in a prevailing rate for your payments for up to two years for delivery at a future date. Please note that a forward contract may require a deposit. This means that you can receive the same rate throughout your time studying abroad, without having to keep an eye out for any upturns or downturns in the market.
