  1. if i successed apply the jpa loan ,but i don’t have enough money for the cost of living in oversea ,can i apply bank loan just for the living fees?
    is that true that nowaday uk and usa don’t allow foreign students stay at their country working then immigrants at their country after graduate?please reply asap ..thanks..

    • JPA only gives scholarships to students who achieve excellent results in their SPM. Banks generally don’t give loans for studies overseas but you may check with the banks yourself. You are allowed to work for a limited time in the USA and UK after you graduate.
