Hi, could anyone explain how University loans work for international students. Like do they give you money to live while your going there or do they give you a place to live and food and then you have to go to work yourself to get money for personal things? Could anyone explain?

Do you mean scholarships/bursaries from the university?
Or are you talking about independent loans?

Where you get the money from university, I think it’s the bursary.

A college might give you an international student loan on top of your scholarship/bursary, it’s normally for a fairly small amount (say 5k per year), and you’ll pay it back after you graduate. You can generally work on campus (max 10-20 hrs a week, depending on the school)- money will be paid to you every couple of weeks and you can use that for personal expenses. You won’t be able to work outside campus as that’s against the rules of your student visa.
Living expenses, housing and meals, on top of tuition, must be paid before the start of the year, minus any financial aid you get, ofc.
