    Hi I'm about to start my final year at university (undergraduate).
    I'm not eligible for the maintenance loan as I had not lived in the UK for at least 3 years before starting my course, therefore I'm looking for a decent private loan company where I can borrow 5-8k.

    Does anyone know any good private student loan companies or have an advice for me regarding that? Any help would be much appreciated! Thank you.

    The main private loan provider in in the UK is Future Finance, however their interest rates are quite high (they vary according to your credit rating) and they require you to pay up to £75 per month back whilst studying then 3 months after graduation make full repayments whether you have a job or not. So not really advised because you could end up in a worse financial mess than when you started.
