Student Loan Schemes for non-UK Students
Please contact the Ministry of Education in your home country to enquire about the availability of government student loans for study in the UK. In addition, commercial lenders may offer student loan programmes to help international students.
Students from the US or Canada
If you are from the US or Canada, you will be able to access the official student loan schemes in your home country to study at UCL. UCL's Student Funding Office is able to assist with processing your loan application - for advice email firstname.lastname@example.org
More information about US student loans can be found here

Scholarships and Bursaries for undergraduate students
UCL offers a number of scholarships and bursaries for undergraduate students, including many for international students. These are mostly awarded on academic merit. They range in value from £1,000 per year to full fees, return airfare and a living allowance of up to £14,000 annually.
Full details of all scholarships are available at www.ucl.ac.uk/scholarships. Please note that the UCL Undergraduate Bursary (incorporating the National Scholarships Programme) is not open to EU or overseas students.
Working while studying
You can work part-time, as many students do, to supplement your income during your studies. That said, we'd like to emphasise that your academic work should take priority! One of the benefits of living in London is that there is no shortage of varied and reasonably paid employment. The UCL Students' Union JobShop acts as an agency offering temporary work both on and beyond the UCL campus.
International students who require a
visa or prior entry clearance are normally permitted to work for up to 20 hours
per week during term-time and full-time in the vacations. This restriction
applies to voluntary as well as to paid employment. For full details see www.ukcisa.org.uk
