Procedure[edit]

Education loan - Banks:

  1. The borrower must gather all documents they may need to present or submit to the bank to apply for a loan.
  2. Complete an application, make sure that you have provided all the required information in the form. Most forms can be downloaded from the bank's website.
  3. Submitting an application:
    1. In person: Most loan applications are done in person, with the applicant or his/her guardian going to the bank, you may set up an appointment with the bank by giving them a ring. Submit the completed application form along with other required documents. Note: Banks may ask you to submit additional documents aside from the ones listed on the 'Required documents' section. It will be better if you can get in touch with the bank's representative/lending officer/customer service by phone first before you go to the bank's branch. They can give you a checklist of required documents, answer some of your queries and direct you to the nearest branch of the bank in your area.
    2. Online: To save you some time, you may also check if you can start your loan application online. Some banks will ask applicants to complete a preliminary application to be submitted electronically, with some of the required documents sent via email. After reviewing the application, a lending officer will contact you to discuss your application.
  4. Once your application is approved, the bank will ask you and/or your co-borrower to sign the loan agreement. Note: Read the loan agreement carefully before you sign, take note of the interest rate, grace period, when you will start repaying the loan and any penalties in case of default.

  • Some banks offers interest-free loans to students wishing to continue their education at selected educational institutions in Kosovo that have co-operation agreements with the Bank.
  • Minimum loan amount: Depends on the price set by the educational institution
  • Loan duration: Up to 60 months
  • Minimal employment record (for the borrower, not necessarily the student): 3 months


Before applying for an education loan:

  • Make sure that you can present and submit all the required documents that the bank is asking for.
  • Take note of the interest rate, conditions, and repayment scheme that the bank is offering. Look into several banks and do some research regarding the banks application process.
  • You might also need to consider the bank's customer service before you apply for a loan, since student loans are usually long term, it will make transactions easier and can spare you from a lot of headache in the future if your bank has good and accommodating bank representatives or loan officers.
  • It may be helpful if you can ask your university/college if they offer any loans to students or if they have partnered with any banks that offers student financing.
  • Loan amount: You may not need to accept the entire amount of the loan the bank is offering you. Remember that what you are getting is not a grant but a loan, meaning you will need to pay back everything plus interest sometime in the future.
