Significance and Scope of Education Loan


People are generally more aware now of the power and significance of education as a tool for improving life. They also know that education is no longer just something for children . Education is a lifelong and continuing activity. To organize continuing education more relevantly and meaningfully for empowering our people, we should have a vision of what education can achieve. Learning is not just limited to reading, writing and arithmetic. Learning is about improving ones knowledge, skills and attitudes to make life easier, fuller, longer and more enjoyable. Learning then has a practical purpose. It can help us to cope with the changing world socially, economically, culturally, physically and spiritually. Learning provides us with practical tools to improve the quality of life or to change it. Our efforts to educate ourselves should not top after the completion of primary schooling or a basic literacy programme . We should continue these efforts throughout our lives.Continuing education gives us opportunities to engage in lifelong learning.

INTRODUCTION Education loans can augment the boundaries of what you can achieve
Education never ends it is not said without reason. We are educated all our lives and getting an education not only is a great achievement but something that gives you the tools to find your own way in the world. Education is indispensable; little do we realize how much more it can bring to us in terms of worldly amplifications. Anyone can have propensity and the natural endowment for education. But one might not have the resources to finance their education. You certainly cant let lack of resources impede you from advancing your prospects through education. Then you accidentally stumble upon the word education loans. Loans for education you have never thought about it as a feasible arrangement. Education loans can open newer panoramas in regard to your education aspirations.

Education loans are open to all people in all its myriad forms. Education loans can realize your education plans or the education plans of your children. You can strengthen you own future and the future of your son or daughter with education loans. An extensive range of student and parent loans are presented under the category of education loans. There are many types of education loans. Discerning about the types of education loans will help you in making the accurate decision. The single largest resource of education loans is federal loan. The two main federal education loan programs are the Federal Family Education Loan Program and the Federal Direct

Loan Program. In the Federal Family Education Loan Program the bank, credit union or the school is the lender. While the federal direct loans program, the department of education is the lender.

Private education loans are offered to people so that they can provide financial backup to their education plans. Private education loans are not endorsed by other government agencies but are provided by other financial institutions. Private education loans program are optimum for both undergraduate and graduate studies.

Formal education is requisite for future success. Though this is not a hard and fast rule, but education certainly helps you in gaining an upper hand. With universities getting expensive by each day an education loan will certainly give you an incentive to go ahead with your education plans. Each year while contemplating on your education plans the thought of finances almost invariably comes in. While working towards you degree, you are constantly plagued about paying for the education fees, books, and other living expenses. Education loans can provide funding for tuition fees, board and room, books computer, and even student travel. An education loan can help you with all these expenses. Education loans are sufficient enough to take care of all these expenses. If you have been forced to drop your education for any reason, you can still take up your education at any point of time. Irrespective of your age and also where you have left your education.

There are no specific eligibility criteria for education loans. Any person who is in need of sponsorship for education can find an education loan that befits his or her financial necessity. Loan amount on education loans vary with the kind of education you want to pursue. The repayment options with education loans will similarly accommodate your personal financial preferences. You can either repay interest amount while still in school or six months after graduation. Education loans offer up to ten years for repayments. The refund alternatives on education loans also include deferment, forbearance and consolidation. The various sites on education loans can give you innumerable repayment options and monetary remuneration.

Education loans will help you in planning your life after graduation. However, an education loan like every loan is a huge financial obligation. An education loans is generally the first substantial loan for most people and therefore the first major expense. Do not be completely dependent on your education loans for the funding of your complete education. Try to apply for any other financial sustenance like university grants, scholarships, fellowships, work study programs and assistance ship and any other form of aid. This will certainly encourage a fluid dispensation of your education loans. You can start by going to the financial aid office in your school or university. It will provide you further insight to the kind of education loans, you must apply for.

Education is an experience of life. It is so rewarding in itself that it helps you to manage almost everything in your life. Education loans discipline your impulse towards education and training into a fruitful contrivance. The payoff is delicious in terms of improved quality of life. Education is expensive! Is it? With education loans it cant be. Now, you dont have to take the road in front of you. Make your own road with education loans.

RECOMMENDATIONS

Banks should go for advertisement Campaign from Scratch. Banks should try to cash its brand image. Strong branch network should be made and staff personnels incentives should be increased.

Banks should increase its product line in education loans. Special scheme for non-professional students as well as for professional students should be increased.

Banks should introduce some new model keeping in mind the loan suitable for medium income group customer.

Presence of some famous personality in Advertisement or in Pamphlets insuring better retention in the mind of customers.

In this age of information, the customer before taking loans collects all the information about various brands. The banks should provide a combined booklet of the product range in order to upgrade the knowledge of future takings of loans.
