Student loans serve as a great financial aid to students who otherwise wouldn't have been able to pursue their education abroad. If it weren't for education loans, millions of students would never have made it to their dream universities. 

However, it is also a fact that not everyone will be eligible to get an abroad education loan without collateral as too many loan applications get rejected by the lenders.
