DFCC Bank, the Bank for Everyone, offers special education loan packages, providing end-to-end financial solutions suited for individuals seeking to pursue higher education programs locally or internationally. Offering flexible repayment options coupled with competitive interest rates, DFCC Bank caters to aspiring individuals and parents who are keen on obtaining the best financial support available within the country, to facilitate hassle-free measures in obtaining quality education.

With today’s level of competition in the current corporate world, basic O-Level and A-Level qualifications do not have the capacity to equip an individual to move up the corporate ladder as opposed to previous decades. While higher education qualifications pose as an expensive investment, obtaining a recognised higher education qualification is made possible with the partnering of DFCC Bank.

Keeping in line with the Bank’s motive to provide an unmatched service to aspiring professionals DFCC recently entered into an agreement with Gateway Graduate School to provide an exciting new Education loan scheme that would ease the burden of students and parents, for all courses offered at Gateway Graduate School. The low interest scheme is designed in a manner where students are given the flexibility to pay only the interest during the study period and pay the capital once qualified and find employment. With a total payback period of seven years, the loan scheme is very attractive.
