Bank Loans

Canadian Citizens & Permanent Residents

Ivey has developed the MSc Loan Program in partnership with a number of Canadian banks to create competitive loan packages for Ivey MSc candidates.

Repayment terms vary amongst institutions with some banks allowing individuals to make interest-only payments for 12 months following graduation. The loan resembles a personal line of credit where you are charged interest every month. The interest rates are competitive (presently prime + 1/2%; TD Canada Trust rate is prime + 0.0%). Each bank assesses your application against its lending criteria.

Each bank has designated one London branch to handle all Ivey MSc loans. This allows more personalized and efficient service for each student. We encourage you to compare the fees and terms of all student loan products in the chart found below, to determine which is best suited to your needs.
