  • Can you get a student loan aswell as your sponsorship?

    Im starting my engineering cadetship at Warsash in Sept 2014 and just wondering if anyone knows if you can apply for a student loan when your getting a sponsorship.

    I have known folks to do it, so yes, but you need to be very very careful with one...
    I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.....

      Ditto. When I was a cadet one of the engineer cadets got a student loan. Bought a flash watch and a large paddling pool. The paddling pool lasted one afternoon of jumping into it from the upstairs bedroom window... Great fun was had, but he is probably still paying it off now...

        If you have never had one before I think it is quite easy to do, but generally unless you have prior financial commitments most people prefer and manage OK on their pay.

            Maybe, maybe not. It depends on the length of time you're at college. Seek advice or trawl through the small print on the student loans company website.
