US Federal Loans

If you are a US citizen, you may be able to take out a loan to meet the cost of your studies.

Swansea University is a participating institution in the William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan Program. Money is loaned by the US Department of Education directly to students via their schools. We offer assistance to a growing number of students (U.S. citizens only) seeking loans to study at either undergraduate or postgraduate level at the University. When you apply to study, we keep you informed at each step of the process by email. These web pages outline the types of loans available, when and how to apply for them and how they will be disbursed. 

The information in this section is relevant to prospective students as well as current undergraduate and graduate students.

Note: Swansea University does not charge a borrower fee of any kind for Direct Loan origination activities or the provision of any information for a student or parent to receive a Direct Loan.
