Higher Education Loan Programme (H.E.L.P.)
Students can obtain financial assistance for tertiary-level education through the Higher Education Loan Programme (HELP). HELP is a special soft loan facility made available through the Ministry of Tertiary Education and Skills Training (TEST) that can help cover the following expenses:
Airfare and other transportation costs.
Personal maintenance costs and living expenses.
Books and related materials.
Special equipment costs.
Other related tertiary education expenses.
Students must take the completed HELP application form and a Letter of Acceptance from ROYTEC to the loan department of a participating commercial bank. Forms are available at the Student Welfare Office.
ROYTEC Student Assistance Programme
ROYTEC may assist students whose individual financial circumstances prevent them from affording the non-tuition cost of attending classes. Students’ grants are subject to a review and evaluation of the student’s ongoing financial status and academic performance. The fund may award grants based on demonstrated financial need, GPA and involvement in ROYTEC.
