Credila education loans cover all the expenses incurred while studying abroad like tuition & living costs and caution deposit/building fund/refundable deposit.
- Customized options and malleable repayment provisions - One of the USPs of Credila Education Loans is that it provides customized loan solutions to students as per the country or course they have chosen.

- Flexible options for the co-borrower - HDFC Credila Education Loan has customized repayment solutions for the co-borrower. There are also very few restrictions on who the co-borrower can be. For example, if your father or relative works abroad, he/she can be a co-borrower/guarantor. For him/her to be the co-borrower/guarantor, he/she should have an NRI account, and most importantly, the collateral should be in India. You will require an additional co-borrower in both the cases.

- Pre-admission loan sanction - The best part of applying for a Credila education loan is that it sanctions the loan even before you receive your admission letter. For this, Credila takes into account your GRE score. If you apply for a loan via GyanDhan, you can be assured that the whole financing process will be taken care of by us. In this way, you will be able to direct your focus entirely to writing your college application and preparing for admission interviews.
