Here you will find an overview of all fees and interest rates. As a foundation, we want to offer you the most affordable way to finance your education project with loans. There are no additional costs – we promise!
- The coaching sessions to prepare your file for the loan are always free of charge.
- You pay a fee to EDUCA SWISS that covers the costs for loan mediation and support until the completion of your educational project.
- You pay interest to your lender for the loan.
|Annual fee||Yearly||60 CHF||Once you have completed your file and decide to take out a loan, you pay your first annual fee. You will pay this fee until you have fully repaid all loans.|
|Contract fee||One time per contract||50 CHF||You pay this fee once every time you sign a loan agreement.|
|Contract support fee||One time per contract||20 CHF||This fee covers our expenses to update your contract and other documents on a regular basis. This applies during the term of your contract. You will be charged at the end of the year.|
|Interest rate||Yearly||0% – 3.25%||The interest rate is fixed between your lender and you for the entire term. Our average interest rate is 2%. The interest rate may not exceed the maximum interest rate set by us.|
|Risk premium death||Yearly||0.075% of the loan amount||This contribution is for possible death. In case of death, half of the loan would be repaid by EDUCA SWISS to the lender.|
Paying the first annual fee is a prerequisite for a loan to be awarded. At the beginning of each year, invoices are sent for the annual fee of the current year and fees from the previous year.
