If you application file is complete and you qualify for the next stage, then we will invite you to an interview for a detailed discussion.
What happens after I receive the loan offer?
After receiving the credit offer you need to analyze it and accept it.
You loan offer will always depend on your university offer. If you don’t have yet an offer from the university, or your offer is conditional, your loan offer will be conditional.(If your university offer becomes unconditional, then your FINS loan offer will also become unconditional).
Once you get an unconditional offer from a university abroad, we will be able to sign the loan contract.
After signing the loan contract, you will be able to receive the loan as agreed.
Wht do FINS students say?
FINS entails a lending mechanism focused rather on your professional and academic profile, as compared to other lending solutions provided by banks. Therefore, it is possible to access as source of financing for studies immediately after graduation. Moreover, FINS provides a loan based on personal estimates of expenses, structured in monthly instalments, both being useful in order to ensure an easier management of the budget during studies. Also, the application experience is a pleasant one, without the bureaucracy and rigidity of a standard financial institution. For me, FINS represents the main source of support that has allowed me to study abroad today.
Mobility and freedom are two fundamental elements for any study experience, both in Romania and abroad, and I think these are precisely the elements I managed to obtain with the help of FINS. The fact that I no longer have to worry so much about daily costs has given me the freedom to exclusively focus on the master's program and on extracurricular activities. The financial challenges are, with certainty, not just limiting but truly debilitating when you, as a fresh high school or university graduate, try to figure out what it is that you want to do for the future. Therefore, having your options conditioned by how much money you have in the bank, will eventually stop you from living your best life. FINS also taught me about financial responsibility and made me aware that having access to a competitive educational system that can offer real opportunities that are compatible with my needs and expectations are strong-enough reasons to take out a loan and invest it into your future.
My experience with FINS has been both advantageous and pleasant. There were times when I financially depended on FINS to a great extent, so I can truly say it is a useful service. The application process was easy. You need free time, you will go through an interview and you will have several documents to sign. I would recommend FINS because it is one of the best financial services for students out there. As such, for future young professionals, FINS represents the perfect solution.
I had a very pleasant experience with FINS as it massively helped me during my studies. The application process was easy and I fully recommend it. If you are in a financial difficult situation like I was, but you still want to study abroad, then FINS is the most obvious choice.
