The school further credits the tuition fees and any funds in excess to the student’s personal bank account.
I never thought it would be so quick. It would have been nearly impossible for me to do my master's if Prodigy Finance wasn't there.
It was much more efficient than Indian banks. The thing that stood out most for me about Prodigy Finance was the people. There is someone you can reach out to, and someone will personally get back to you.
It's the opportunity to accomplish a dream and I don't know where I would be now without the Prodigy Finance's International Student loans.
