    Hey guys. I'm an American currently not living in the UK but I'm interested in possibly studying over there. My understanding is that the vast majority of student loans in the UK come from the SLC and, in general, foreigners would not be eligible for those until they have lived in the UK for three years.

    What I'm wondering is if I could borrow the money from a bank instead. What do you guys know about this?

    Actually, after doing a little bit more research, it seems that U.S. Direct Loans will cover most programs however, I'm sure someone will correct me if this is wrong.
