What are the expenses covered by a higher education loan?

Apart from your tuition fee, there are several other costs involved in pursuing an MBA. For instance, you need to figure out how to pay for your accommodation if your university is far from home. These expenses can be quite heavy on your pocket, especially when you already have a considerable sum of tuition fee to pay for. Opting for a student loan is an excellent way of financing your higher education due to the comprehensive coverage offered.
