Many students have their studies sponsored by family, state funding, or their company.
In some countries government funding is available to support students studying abroad. Students from Norway, Sweden, Belgium and others, have all successfully gained funding from their home countries to be able to support their studies at PCU.
If you think you may be eligible for funding from your home country do not hesitate to ask for our advice and support regarding any documentation you might need. We offer administrative support for students applying for loans, bursaries and grants to help fund their studies.
