Can somebody please explain loans to me? I've been trying to get my head around them but there are so many different types, I'm veeery confused! For example, if I wanted a loan of £50,546.15 (roughly :tongue: ) for training fees, what would I need to do? At first I thought I needed a bank loan...but don't bank loans require you to have a job as proof that you are able to pay it back? And student loans seemed to be aimed at university/college students, but I need a loan to become a pilot! I want to do my music degree first, but I need to know whether it's feasible to come out of college with £40,000 in debt and then get another loan of £50,000? Would any loany type people be stupid enough to give that to me? Any sensible grown-up's replies very much appreciated!
