FNB Life Start Student Loans

From FNB student loans you can get a loan from R4 000 to finance further and higher education including books and tuition fees.

What can I do with my FNB Bank student loan?

  • Pay tuition fees directly to the University/educational institution
  • Service only the interest portion whilst completing your studies and start repaying interest plus capital after graduation
  • Consider your no obligations quote, which is valid for 10 days
  • Receive a better interest rate if you bank with FNB

What will it cost?

The monthly repayment amount is based on your risk profile and the terms of the loan.

Do I qualify for an FNB Bank student loan?

To apply, your parent or sponsor must be permanently or self employed; should have worked for the same employer or in the same industry for a reasonable period of time; and should be able to afford the monthly repayments. His/her credit record as well as bank account conduct will also be taken into consideration.

What do I need to do?

You will require the following documentation:

  • A valid green bar-coded South African Identity Document for the parent as well as the student
  • Non-FNB customer: original bank statements for the last 3 months
  • Most recent pay slips / proof of employment:
  • One month's pay slip if paid monthly
  • Two if paid fortnightly
  • Four if paid weekly
  • Provide a settlement quote from the University/educational institution.
