Life brings opportunities on a daily basis, but for us human beings to see anything as an opportunity we should have the abilities and qualities to grasp it.
About – Investec
In South Africa and the rest of the world, people who have higher educational qualifications tend to run away with opportunities and those who have few certificates to show in their names are always at the receiving end.
This is one of the reasons why Investec emancipate the lives of South Africans and give them more abilities to grab opportunities that come around with student loans.
The company gives out student loans to students who are enrolled with tertiary institutions, giving them an enhanced ability to pass and complete their studies.
WHAT FORM OF STUDENT LOANS DOES INVESTEC OFFER?
Investec gives opportunities to bright students and those who have traceable commitments in their studies by providing student loans that are sufficient and almost repayable with every client.
The company provides student loans in forms of bursaries that will be repaid after the term of the study with very low-interest charges. The company does that to facilitate smooth learning at the same time crafting sharp minds to be the leaders of the future.
Applicants who obtain our student loans will be taken in by the Investec company as workers and their loans. Also, they will only be repaid once they have graduated from the institutions.
WHO IS TARGETED BY INVESTEC STUDENT LOANS?
The company has identified a critical shortage in some areas of education, and it is in these areas that the company seeks to make partakers perform well.
The Investec student loans are issued to students who are taking studies in areas of Maths, Sciences and English, making sure that the critical skills gap shortage in South Africa gets filled.
The students should be those who have shown the potential of making excellent achievements in their educational endeavours at both high school and tertiary education level.
WHAT IS THE ADVANTAGE OF INVESTEC STUDENT FUNDING?
The organisation provides a loan and employment, that’s giving the best type of enhancement in the life of South Africans.
As most can recall, Investec is one of the best companies that South Africans can work for, and it offers excellent working conditions and attractive remunerations. After funding our students, the company does not leave them to cope on their own.
The students are provided for on all other educational needs, ranging from meals, accommodation, medication and books. This is just part of the many things that Investec is doing to improve the lives of South Africans.
DOES INVESTEC FUND FOREIGN STUDENTS?
The company provides student loans and educational loans to all the residents of South Africa, and our existence is much larger than just in South Africa.
International students who are sponsored by South Africans or those with permanent resident status can also obtain student loans with Investec. Similar to all other applicants, the students will need to meet the minimum requirements, also, to have excellent academic results.
The company offers student financial services that can be compared with none, and this is part of our efforts to give back to the communities.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO OBTAIN INVESTEC STUDENT LOANS?
The bursary or loans provided by Investec does not take a long time to acquire as what other educational funding institutions do. Applicants can obtain funding from as little as two weeks’ period up until three months.
If the three months’ period passed without a reply, it would be an indirect communication that the student loan application did not pass. The time it takes to obtain the loans will differ depending on various things.
The company does an individual assessment to all the applicants, and when the number of applicants is high, the loans might also delay. At all times, Investec makes consistent efforts to issue student loans in time.
The applicants of student funding will, however, be required to be working, but those who work can apply. The applicants should be South African residents who have a good credit rating in addition to having excellent academic results.
During application, the following documents will be required
- An Identity document
- Proof of residential address that is not older than three months
- A stamped bank statement
- Academic results
- Proof of registration/admission at one of the South African institutions
