We know that choosing to pursue an MBA is one of the most important decisions you will make and is a substantial investment in yourself. Many of our students on the Weekend MBA fund their studies through multiple funding sources, combining personal resources with education loans and scholarships. Funding sources to consider:
Financing your Weekend MBA
You should consider what personal resources are available to you and evaluate your income, assets and your lifestyle expenses. Personal resources reduce your dependency on loans and other financing options.
A Professional and Career Development Loan is a government-backed commercial bank loan that UK residents can use to help pay for work-related learning. Imperial College London is a Professional and Career Development Loans registered Learning Provider, registration number 7477. For more information and to find out which banks offer the loan, see the gov.uk website.
Individual banks, building societies and other lenders offer MBA loans.
Lendwise is a specialist loan provider dedicated to education finance for UK residents who are looking to fund their postgraduate studies at top universities. For Imperial College London, North American and EU nationals will also be considered for a Lendwise loan.
Full-time programme students who are approved for a Lendwise loan will have access to a grace period that allows for repayment to start after graduation. The interest rate offered will depend on the overall applicant profile.
To apply you must have received an offer of admission to a postgraduate degree programme at Imperial College Business School. The application process is entirely online. Contact Lendwise directly to apply.
The Weekend MBA has been mapped to the Level 7 Senior Leaders Master’s Degree standard, meaning that employers may use up to £18,000 of apprenticeship levy funding to subsidise staff to undertake the programme. Further information is available here.
Please note that other sources of funding may be available.
