Loans For International Students

Understanding student loans for international students can be complicated, but it’s good to know that if you’re an international student and looking for some extra cash whilst your student finance applications are in process, Smart Pig makes it easy. From a simple application that can take as little as 5 minutes to the assurance that interest is capped at 50% of what you borrow, no matter what happens - you’re in safe hands.

With quick, hassle-free, short-term loans available, Smart Pig can provide you with the extra money to temporarily cover your essentials whilst you wait for your student loan to come through. Our private student loans for international students are specifically designed so that manageable instalments can be repaid with no late payment fees. Studying abroad can be stressful enough, so designed with students in mind, we offer a safer form of borrowing compared to payday loan companies.

An emergency international student loan could be the answer to getting through a short-term financial struggle and should not be seen as a long-term fix. To find out how much you could borrow, start our short application process and you could be paid your additional student loan within 2 hours.

What they’ve said about us

If you have to get a loan, use Smart Pig

Smart Pig is so easy to use and fast! It’s easy to be approved and they allow a grace period. The system is set up with low-interest rates and for short terms so that their clients are more protected than with other loan agencies. I highly recommend Smart Pig.

Honestly the best loaning website

Honestly the best loaning website for students, there is honestly no way you can get bad credit from using smart pig due to the requirements for you to apply for a loan. They even give leeway with payback time which is so considerate. Have used smart pig for the three years I’ve been at uni and had NO PROBLEMS WHATSOEVER

Honestly a lifesaver

Honestly a lifesaver, as a student when you apply for accommodation you usually have to pay some rent for August, before you get student loan. This can always be difficult to raise if you don’t have a job and having an option for a loan is so useful and what you pay back is pretty decent.

Amazing Idea!

As a student, you can't get a standard loan and student finance will happily watch you starve. This really helped in those last couple of weeks before my student finance loan came in! As long as you pay it back on time it's fantastic and super easy!

Highly Recommend

Student loan not due for a week & I was desperate for funds to pay month-end bills and for transport. Thank you to smart pig who I found through google just before applying for a rip-off payday loan. The entire process took 30mins (from applying to having funds in my account).
