The Commonwealth Bank’s Unsecured Personal Loan for domestic students offers loans up to $50,000 with variable interest rates starting from 11.50% p.a (comparison rate 12.16%). As this is an unsecured loan you won’t have to provide any collateral, plus you can choose to make repayments weekly, fortnightly or monthly.

Key features

With the Commonwealth Bank’s Unsecured Personal Loan, students can apply for a loan from as small as $4,000 to as big as $50,000, as long as you’ve got the income to support your loan repayments. The loan can be payable over as short a time as 1 year to as long as 7 years. 

As a domestic student, you also won’t have to pay the $150 application fee that comes with the Commonwealth Bank’s standard unsecured personal loan, as long as you apply for the loan in branch and bring your student ID.

Plus you’ll be happy to hear that with this personal loan you won’t be penalised for making early repayments if you want to pay out your loan early. There’s also a redraw facility in case you do make extra repayments and then want that cash down the track.

As a busy student on the go, you might also be pleased to hear that you can easily manage your loan online using NetBank or the CommBank app. On top of that, if you apply and are approved before midday, you might even be able to receive funding the same day.

Who is it good for

This loan is good for domestic students looking to receive a lump sum of money quickly, to cover the costs of moving out of home, studies or even the purchase of a car. It’s also great if you’re keen to make extra repayments and get rid of your debt quicker!

snapshot
Any catches

Only domestic students can apply for this loan and you will have to apply in branch and provide a valid student ID. There is also a $10 monthly service fee payable with this loan.
