Education Loan FAQs

What are the interest rates for a loan through Harmoney?

All our personal loans have fixed personalised interest rates, set based on the risk grade assigned to each Borrower during their application. You can find out more about what interest rate could apply to you on our Interest Rates and Fees page.

Do you provide education loans for international students?

Harmoney doesn’t provide education loans for international students. To be eligible to apply for a personal loan through Harmoney, you must be a New Zealand resident with a valid NZ passport or driver licence - and if you’re a NZ resident, you won’t be an international student.

How long do I have to pay off my loan?

When you apply for a loan through Harmoney, you can choose a 36 or 60 month loan term. As standard, all loans are set to standard monthly repayments, but we can usually arrange a more frequent repayment schedule to suit you. But with no early repayment penalties, you get the freedom to increase your regular repayment amounts or make lump sum payments without any additional fees, and pay your loan off faster.

Is there a difference between an education loan and a student loan?

Interest-free student loans are available from Study Link, a service run by the NZ Ministry of Social Development. If you meet Study Link’s eligibility requirements, it’s obviously a good choice.

If you don’t meet the requirements for a student loan from Study Link - whether it’s because you’re the parent of a student, because you’re studying part time, or because you don’t meet the requirements for course related costs, then an education loan through Harmoney’s peer to peer lending platform could work for you.
