Student services and information availability are ongoing at every stage of the support journey with Study Medicine Europe from applications through to graduation. SME understands that every student’s ability to focus on their studies is very personal and we work to mitigate any barriers to academic success.
Managing financial payments is a feature of any educational programme with fees specific to each programme and institution. While SME does not offer a loan service, our support team is committed to staying up-to-date with options that can help offer our students financial support to fund their courses. This team will keep every student fully updated on any significant changes regarding the loans relevant in the country of your choosing, ensuring that you have all the information you need to make a smart and informed choice.
Financial Support Options – Student Loans
If you are interested in applying for a student loan, we can apply on your behalf at one of the local financial institutions cooperating with your chosen academic institution that offer this option. With years of cooperation with these financial institutions and having offered such services to numerous students in the past, we can effectively facilitate loan approval if student financing is made available by these financial institutions.
The process will involve the SME team directly liaising with you to ensure there is a comprehensive understanding of all needs. During this time, SME gathers and submits in person all necessary documents. Based on the information you, the student, provides, SME negotiates the type, duration, amount and even the interest rate and the grace period of the loan repayment. The information provided to the financial institution will be based on your financial need concerning living expenses and tuition fees. SME recognises that each student’s situation is different, so we will take every detail into account when advising on the student loan that’s best for you. While the ultimate decision on approval of the loan is out of our hands, we will do all we can to help you on the way to getting the student loan.
The relevant institution will then make the final decision as to whether student loans will be approved. SME has no liability in such cases, as it is the lending institution who decides what loans they will offer every academic year.
Student Loans Specifics
All types of loans that SME helps students receive are made available through financial institutions that have signed a Student Loans Agreement with our partner universities (in Armenia, Georgia, Serbia, Ukraine, Bulgaria and Romania) that participate in these programmes.
