ABOUT BIRMINGHAM:

 

Birmingham, Britain's second city, known as the city of a thousand trades, has long been recognised as one of the World's most important manufacturing and commercial centres.

The first record of Birmingham, is as a small roman station on Icknield Street. It became an industrial town in early times and is known to have supplied thousands of sword blades to the Parliamentary forces during the Civil War in the 16th-century.

In spite of the grinding poverty associated with 19th-century industrial towns, the city developed and prospered. This new prosperity caused the creation of many fine new buildings. The Town Hall, built in 1834 is modelled on a classical roman temple. The City's Council House of 1879 is of grand Victorian proportions. The Anglican Cathedral of St.Philip, dates from the 18th-century and the Roman Catholic Cathedral of St.Chad, designed by Augustus Pugin, was built around 1840.

The City's Bull-Ring Centre has been re-developed twice. The first rebuild was in the 1960's, the second New Bull-Ring was only recently completed and opened in 2003. This massive complex comprises a vast pedestrianized shopping centre and offers many facilities, such as markets, car-parking and restaurants. All this is within easy access to the City's air, road and rail links. Interestingly, the Bull-Ring covers an area which in Medieval times was the Village Green!

 

Much effort too, has gone into the preservation of the City's great network of Canal's. A network said to have more miles of waterways than Venice. These days, gaily-coloured sailing and narrow boats cruise the waters, providing a stark contrast to the memory of Barges filled with coal that plied these canals in Victorian times.

Bank Loans
 

Most public sector banks and private banks provide education loans to students for pursuing higher professional or technical programmes abroad. The sanctioned loan covers university fees, purchase of books, equipment, travel expenses and purchase of computers. Other essentials like study tours, project work and thesis are also often covered by the loan amount.


Obtaining a Bank Loan:
 

Different Banks have different schemes under which they define the amount of the loan they can sanction, the rate of Interest, the time and mode or repayment and all. We must strongly advise you to consult different local banks in your home town for education loans and choose the best option available.

 

Private Company Education Loan:

 

For your benefit and convenience we have tied up with AVANSE EDUCATIONAL LOANS, a private company, to provide you with an educational loan on reasonable terms.

Note that official study loans are accepted by the British High Commission or the British Embassy as proof of funding to cover your tuition fees and living costs. However you may still be required to provide evidence of the security you have provided for this study loan


Repaying the Loan:
 

Students are normally given a repayment holiday or moratorium during the study period plus one year, or six months after getting a job, whichever is earlier. The loan has to be repaid in five to seven years after the commencement of repayment, this again varies from Bank to Bank so please check with your banks while procuring the Bank loan. Whilst you are studying your family will usually be required to pay the interest only on the loan
