Brief Background

South Australia University (UniSA) is a public research university based in the Australian state of South Australia. It is a founding member of the Australian Technology Network of universities, and with approximately 32,000 students, it is the largest university in South Australia. The present form of the university dates back to 1991 with the merging of the South Australian Institute of Technology (SAIT, formed in 1889 as the South Australian School of Mines and Industries) with the Magill, Salisbury and Underdale campuses of the South Australian College of Advanced Education (SACAE, founded in 1856). UniSA is one of the top universities in the world, ranked 26 in the Top 50 under 50 by THE Young University Rankings. It has two Adelaide city center campuses (both on North Terrace), two metropolitan campuses (on Mawson Lakes, formerly The Levels, and Magill), and two South Australia regional campuses (Whyalla and Mount Gambier). The University is located in Adelaide, South Australia, and offers over 200 degrees across four academic divisions: business and law; education, arts and social sciences; health sciences; and information technology, engineering, and environment. The university also promotes challenge-inspired work, ensuring that it is connected to the needs of the industry and public.

Infrastructure

In addition to the aforementioned academic infrastructure, South Australia University has wonderful libraries on five campuses with over 3 million online articles, eBooks, databases, images, printed books and journals. UniSA also runs a number of clinics for students, staff and the general public which include UniSA Medical Clinic, physiotherapy clinics, podiatry clinics and mammography clinics. All campuses have 24-hour computing facilities, fast and free wireless network connections, department laboratories and research centers. Open learning spaces, sports facilities, cafes and restaurants are available. The university also has state-of-the-art audiovisual equipment, lecture/seminar theatres and rooms for interviews.
The university also houses the following health research facilities:

Education Loan for Engineering Students to Study in India & Abroad | GyanDhan
<p> Updated on: 17 May 2021 &nbsp; Going by the popular trends in India, B.Tech is a promising choice for a flourishing career. With a variety of specializations offered, students choose this program for the ample job opportunities and higher salary packages upon graduating. The field in itself is quite diverse and holds a high reputation in India as well as abroad.&nbsp; However, the investment required for this course is equally substantial. An education loan in such a scenario becomes important.&nbsp; Let’s read in detail about the financing options for the course -&nbsp; Should you take an education loan?&nbsp; Education loan is a readily available financing option with several benefits. Most loan products cover 100% of the expenses to study at Indian as well as abroad institutions. With ever-increasing tuition fees, an education loan helps you cover the expenses without the worry of paying large sums of money out of pocket in one go. Some other benefits of an education loan are -&nbsp; Personal / contingency funds can be invested in better schemes earning interest.&nbsp; Tax benefits on education loans help save money, whether you are studying abroad or in India. Students can get loan products that are specifically designed to cater to their needs.&nbsp; The repayment for an education loan starts after the moratorium period ends, a period where the borrower does not have to make any payment towards the loan. Students who repay their education loans on time, build a solid credit history, which has several benefits.&nbsp; You can read about these benefits in detail here&nbsp; What are the top universities for engineering and the cost of studying from abroad?&nbsp; International students are charged a higher tuition fee, which becomes affordable with an education loan. Some of the top-ranked abroad universities for engineering according to their QS ranking are mentioned below -&nbsp; The cost of engineering from abroad will cost students anywhere between INR 25 lakhs to INR 40 lakhs. An education loan, in this case, becomes the easiest method to fund abroad B.Tech for Indian students. What are the top universities and the cost of studying engineering at Indian institutes?&nbsp; Engineering from Indian institutes is also a costly affair. Students can expect to shell out up to INR 30 lakhs for a top-ranked college. Some of the top colleges and institutes in India are all IIT in different cities, NIT, and Vellore Institute of Technology. Most students won’t be able to pay the fees for their B.Tech without the help of an education loan.&nbsp; What are the parameters to check while selecting a loan product?&nbsp; Choosing the right education loan product is a bit tricky. Students need to compare the entire features and cost of the loan to find the optimum product. Some of the factors that should be considered are -&nbsp; Looking for an abroad education loan? Fill the form and get free expert help What are the different types of education loans available for B.Tech students?&nbsp; There are broadly two types of education loans, be it for study in India or abroad -&nbsp; Secured education loan - These types of loans require the borrower to pledge collateral of equal or more value than the loan amount required.

Types of collateral that can be pledged are -&nbsp; Immovable property - house, flat, apartment, a plot with a boundary&nbsp; Liquid assets - LIC Policy, Fixed Deposit&nbsp; Third-party collateral - students who do not own collateral can pledge collateral belonging to a relative or a friend.&nbsp; Unsecured education loans - These types of loans do not require any collateral to be pledged. A co-applicant, however, needs to co-sign the loan along with the borrower. There are multiple factors that are taken into account while evaluating the loan application, such as -&nbsp; Student’s academic record and profile Co-applicant income, profile CIBIL score (borrower and co-borrower) Ranking of the target college and course&nbsp; Future earning potential of the student&nbsp; What are the different types of lenders you should explore?

Education Loan Against Property: A Detailed Overview | GyanDhan
<p> Updated on: 13 May 2021 &nbsp; Worried about arranging funds for your education? With a plethora of study loan options available in the market, you must not worry much! If you have a property to put as security, you have can get an education loan at a lower interest rate for a longer loan tenure. A loan that can be taken by pledging property as a security is called a loan against property. A loan against property (LAP) is a secured loan offered against a property mortgaged with the bank. This property can be a house, an owned land, or any other commercial premises. The loan amount sanctioned under the loan against property is determined based on the market value of the property, which remains as collateral with the lender until the loan amount is repaid. Let’s walk through the features and process of education loan against property…&nbsp; Can we use an education loan on property for higher education? Yes, you can use the loan against property for higher education. This loan is offered to students who are going for higher education in India or overseas. LAP for higher education can be availed of for a part-time, full-time, or vocational course and bachelors or masters in the fields of management, engineering, hotel management, etc. What are the major benefits of education loan against property? The major benefits of LAP for higher education are as follow: High loan amount: The maximum loan amount offered on a loan against property is mainly dependent on the current market value of the property mortgaged with the lender. Therefore, with the higher market value, students can avail themselves of a high loan amount for studies. Low-interest rates: As the loan against property is a secured loan, the interest rate charged on the LAP is lower. usually, the mortgage loan rates start at around 7.20% p.a. from public-sector banks in India. From private lenders, this interest rate would be on the higher side. Ideal utilization of the property: LAP helps in getting the real value of the property as a loan. Applicants can decide not to sell their property and still get sufficient money for their higher education and meet their requirements at reasonable rates of interest. Easy documentation and process: The documentation process and approval system of loan against property for higher education are usually uncomplicated.
