Student Loans and Visas
Many options are available for CANTEACH students. Typically, Students finish their studies in April and start Teachers College abroad in Aug/Sept for the Scotland/Wales and the following late January/early February in New Zealand. This gives you a chance to work over the summer for the UK options or save for 8 months before starting Teachers College in New Zealand.
Another option is to approach a Canadian bank for a student line of credit. 15K+ Canadian student line of credit is available to those who have a co-signor. The amount is determined by the credit level of the co-signor.
Other students have have used OSAP for their study purposes abroad. OSAP loans are not available until you are actually studying at your University.
