SBI Education Loan provides one of the lowest interest rates for abroad studies in the country. The State Bank of India is the country’s leading nationalized lender that runs the SBI Education Loan. It offers 5 different types of education loans: Scholar Loan, Global Ed-vantage Education Loan, Skill Loan, Student Loan and Take-over of an education loan. The Skill Loan and Scholar Loan are for students who wish to pursue their further education in either a premier institute or a vocational college in India. Whereas the Student Loan and Global Ed-vantage Education Loan are designed for students who wish to study abroad. In the case of overseas education, SBI asks for collateral. However, you can avail unsecured loans i.e loans without collateral for the best of colleges and that too up to ₹ 7.5 lakhs only. The great part about the SBI Education Loan is that it offers a subsidised rate of interest to female students as well as the holders of the RiNn Raksha credit life insurance policy. Besides this, since SBI is a scheduled commercial bank, it also provides government schemes such as Dr. Ambedkar Interest Subsidy Scheme for Overseas Studies for OBCs (non-creamy layer) and EBCs, CSIS and Padho Pardesh Interest Subsidy Scheme with most SBI education loan offerings.
Loan Margin: 10
Processing Fees: ₹10,000.00

Assuming you’re targeting overseas education, if you need ₹ 20 lakhs or more, Global Ed-vantage is the right scheme for you, otherwise, Student Loan is the scheme for you. This is because ₹ 20 lakhs is the minimum amount you can apply for under the Global Ed-vantage scheme.
