    Student loan is the difficult part - you won’t be eligible for a UK student loan while studying abroad, and the US certainly won’t give you one.

    So financially, the only way it would be viable is if you can get a scholarship from a particular university, generally an academic or sports scholarship.

    QUOTE=Jane199999;74041202]How can I go to a good Canadian or American University from the UK with A-levels? (including fees and student loan)[/QUOTE]

    That is important to know I am actually Hungarian and I am doing my GCSEs this year, moved to the UK a bit more than 1 year ago and I am in the top 15% of the country with my science PPE results. I am asking a question about university because I have a deadline to apply for colleges due this Tuesday and I don't know what to choose if I don't know where I am going to live later. I love traveling and this is why I am considering to go to university in Canada or in the USA. A scholarship would be really good but I didn't find any scholarship that would be good for me. I am thinking about Business, Marketing or Biotechnology, Molecular Biology. Thank you very much for helping me!!

    Thank you very much for your answer!! That is true. Would that be a good idea to contact a university and ask some questions about it?

    You cannot use UK Student Finance to fund an entire overseas degree.
    You will be changed overseas fees (high) and need to have enough money to support yourself for your entire course.
    So, for most folk this is simply not an option.

    A possible alternative is to do a UK Uni course with 'Study Abroad' and have your study-abroad year in Canada or the USA. If this is a compulsory part of your course (not just something you have chosen to do), it will be covered by SF.

    Depends on your subject and your predicted grades.
    Suggest you search on the UCAS course finder.
