Bridge Loan-

 Pre-Admission Loan-

This is an education loan sanction that helps in securing confirmation of Admission to the Institute/University abroad. This loan is a 'proof of funds' to cover your course fees and living expenses abroad.

Fast-Track Loan-

As the name suggests, this is an express loan. This helps you speed up your admission process for any higher studies abroad course, at the time of application, if that is your requirement. But Fast-Track Loan will be costlier than any other loan.

Certificate of Availability of Funds-

This is not a type of loan but this certificate will be provided by the bank as a confirmation. This certificate demonstrates that you have adequate funds to pursue a course abroad and pay for the course fees and living expenses. It will require showing adequate funds in books of accounts instead of taking the loan.
