£300 Loans for Students

Short-term loans, or “paydays loans” as they’re sometimes known, have a notoriously negative reputation. While we’re not here to judge, we can speak from our own experience.

When our founders were students, one of us had a pretty terrible experience with a short-term lender that resulted in such an almighty mess, we were determined to find a better option for students.

If you’re a student looking for a £300 loan to get you through a difficult period, that’s exactly what Smart-Pig is for. Our loans are small-scale, but fast and flexible - for when you need to make a quick decision no-hassle solution and be confident that it won’t come back to haunt you.

£300 is approaching our upper limit of borrowing (£350), just whatever it takes to give you the headspace to think about more pressing matters. With a £300 loan you can be sure that the most you’d ever owe Smart-Pig is £450 even if you run into further problems, since our interest is capped at 50% of the borrowed sum.

When students already have plenty on their plate, we aim to provide a lending option that is simple, easy, and ethical. Check out Smart Pig loans, and see if we can give you a hand.


You Might Need A £300 Loan For…

…paying rent for a month, if you need to provide a hefty amount upfront.

Alternatively, £300 could go a long way towards supporting you over the summer (whether or not you’re working) with the very conspicuous absence of student finance loan instalments. Or maybe it’s just the right amount to get you prepped for your first time away from home - all the little household things you realise you need, ways to actually transport your stuff that doesn’t involve dozens of carrier bags, maybe even the travel itself.
