    Student loans to study abroad 5th Jul 18 at 9:09 PM
    Iím looking into studying in USA at a university level to obtain a degree. Are there any student loans available for Uk citizens to study abroad? Or would it have to be personal loans to support this I.e from a bank ?

    Nothing from government and loans from banks are possible but are based on your circumstances and ability to repay, which would be hard given you're a student.

    There may be various scholarships from the university itself.

    Highly unlikely there are any offering free tuition because they are private businesses with the goal of making money.
    Your best bet would be a scholarship, not all are based on your exam marks. Some would offer on your tennis ability or your personal circumstances, low income, diverse background etc

    Have you thought about courses here in the UK which include a year in the US?

    Some universities like Stirling make a big deal of spending at least a semester in the US.
