    Financial Aid for US students

     

     

    Welcome Students from the United States

    Medical University of  Bialystok (MUB) understands that planning how you are going to pay for your medical education is an important and sometimes daunting process.  While most of our students use a combination of family contribution, private grants and scholarships,  some students also consider student loan programs as an option to pay for part or all of their educational expenses. It is advisable for all students - including those who have applied for financial aid - to bring sufficient funds with them to cover their initial month's living expenses.
    The Financial Aid Office (FAO) is located at the Deans Office of English Division  ( Branicki Palace-ground floor, room 37)

    Private Education Loans:

    Smart Option Loans

    Sallie Mae offers Medical University of Bialystok students the SMART OPTION LOAN which is a private loan that may be competitive in interest and fees with the PLUS and GRAD PLUS loans in some circumstances. The interest charged on these loans varies according to the borrower’s credit rating. In many instances, students find it financially advantageous to provide a cosigner or endorser on the loan application. You can find out more about these loans.

    Although other private lenders offer US students credit based loans, at this time, it is our understanding that only Sallie Mae offers their private loans to U.S. students studying outside of the United States.
