Financing Germany Uni for American Student

Postby maastersen » Tue Jan 08, 2013 10:05 am

Hello People,

I plan on studying at University of Bonn this April where I have been accepted as a full-time international student pursuing a bachelors degree. Basically, I would like to know if there are any financing options (i.e. loans) through the US that I can take advantage of in my situation. Thus far, it's been very difficult to find anything that I'm eligible for on both sides of the pond (my situation is quite unique, pm for details if needed).

Thank You

This school does not qualify for US federal financial aid - you'd have to check with private loan lenders about getting private student loans, but my guess is these aren't available for foreign schools.

Your best option is to talk to someone at the university for more information on how to fund their program. You may also want to keep an eye out for international scholarships.
