Private and Personal Loans

As former students ourselves, we know better than anyone how tricky managing your finances can be - especially during your studies, and it can be particularly difficult knowing who you can trust when comparing private loans for students. That’s why at Smart Pig, we make sure to offer simple, hassle-free solutions to your financial woes that are tailor-made with students in mind, with a genuine concern for your best interests at heart.

With Smart Pig, our private student loans are structured to go hand in hand with student life. After a short assessment of your current financial situation, you’ll be able to borrow up to £350 to cover any of life’s ups-and-downs, be it a late payment from the student loans company, or a broken down car.

And if you aren’t quite in the right place for one of our personal student loans, then our number one priority is your financial wellbeing. We’re here to help your studies go smoothly, not add to the worries, so we’ll make sure to only let you borrow what you can afford, with zero fixed late fees.

It’s important to remember that a private student loan is the answer to getting through a short-term financial struggles; not long-term ones. Start our short application process to quickly find out how much you could borrow, and you could be paid your private 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).
