    Hello! I'm an international student from Brazil, but will be applying to UK universities with my italian citizenship. The thing is, all unis require brazilian students to take a foundation year before enrolling in the actual course, and these foundation years are pretty expensive. The tuition ranges from 15,000 to 18,000 a year. However, students are not allowed to take a loan for their foundation year.My question is, how do students usually pay for it? is it through small installments through the year? before the beginning of each term? I would be supporting myself and quite frankly, I'm not sure how I'm supposed to pay for it. I don't want to give up my dream of studying in the UK, so are there any other options?

    Hiya:hi:

    I've moved your thread into this sub-forum so that you should hopefully get the replies you're after.

    I would be very surprised if there wasn't some sort of funding available for you. People in here should be able to point you in the right direction.
