Individuals are more successful when they know in advance how much they will have to borrow to finance education. In this module learners will research and explore repayable sources of funding and develop a plan to supplement non-repayable sources of funding if necessary. It is assumed that you have chosen a career, worked out a budget for the length of their programs, and have developed a working portfolio of non-repayable sources of funding.

Learning Outcomes

Using information researched around different repayable funding sources, you will develop a plan for making informed choices around financing your education and repaying money borrowed to pursue post-secondary studies.
