I have 4 offers to start studying law in the UK starting in September and have been looking at various financing options.

Does anyone know whether or not UK banks give loans to international (non-EU/UK citizens) students? If so, which one?
Also, if anyone has other suggestions as to how I should finance my studies, I am all ears.

I will be studying an undergraduate degree in law if that helps.

Future finance are the specialist, but I would avoid them. A degree isnt worth borrowing that amount of money if you are looking for full finance.
Which unis?

Oxford is more likely to have some bursaries or scholarships.

Any loan will need a guarantor if you cant provide security.

Maybe worth it may not. Will your parents be prepared to be guarantors?

Hey,

In most cases getting a loan as an international student that is enough to cover everything is tough. Financing uni is possible if you get a fully funded scholarship or sponsorship. Most UK fully funded scholarships are for Masters studies/ Post Graduate and for bachelors its mostly a small percent discount like 20% or so. I am an international student and I tried to get ways to help finance my education but it was very hard so my family is supporting me. What most students do is opt to find help from family or parents at least with paying their school fees then working part-time alongside their uni degree to earn their rent and pocket money as they study. It is hard being that you also need to concentrate on your degree So any support you can get is helpful.

Hope this helps.

I did some research and future finance were the only ones I found. Try asking the banks of the country you reside in and or have citizenship of. I contacted a few Austrian banks and they said it could be possible. Either way, I've decided to take a gap year and work to earn some money to fund at least the first year myself.
