Interest Servicing Repayment

Repay only the interest during your course of study ("Interest Servicing Period") and the principal and interest of the loan thereafter.

 

The Interest Servicing Period will be determined by the duration of your course, provided that the Interest Servicing Period shall not exceed 4 years. The Interest Servicing Period will be rounded up to the next 6-month mark, e.g. if the course is 3 years and 7 months, the Interest Servicing Period will be 4 years.

Repayment of Principal + Interest will start at the end of the Interest Servicing Period.
