How Deferred Tuition Works

EdAid works with education leaders to create a program tailored to your strategic goals.

Our Team partners with each education provider to determine the right model for your needs and build a custom interface for your students, hosted on our tech platform. We manage student onboarding, affordability checks, and tuition payments with a human-centered approach. We focus on driving robust outcomes for students in partnership with world-class education providers.

We offer two models of Deferred Tuition:

Income Based Payments

Payments are set as a percentage of gross income (for example, 10%) with zero interest. Payments pause without penalty if income falls below a minimum income threshold.

Flexible Payment Plans

Payments are spread over an extended period (for example, over 24 months) with zero interest. Increase access by lowering the barriers to entry and upfront costs for students.

Your educator may offer one, or both, models of Deferred Tuition. Please check your landing page for full details, or ask a member of our Student Success Team.


Who is the team behind EdAid?

We are a passionate, entrepreneurial team committed to making education financing more fair and affordable. We focus on building high-quality and secure technology-led solutions to solve issues around education funding and student debt.

Our Founder and CEO, Tom Woolf, started the company in 2011 and has built a dedicated, experienced team to help accelerate your career and make your education more affordable.

We have a global team, supporting students in 180 countries with offices in Dubai, London, New York, Sydney and Toronto.

So what exactly is it that you do?

We partner directly with schools and offer their students payment plans to help split the cost of tuition into manageable, monthly payments. For educators, EdAid provides the legal, regulatory, and customer support to make deferred payments easy, from enrolment until tuition has been fully paid. For students, we’re the human face of education financing. Both of these mean that schools can take greater risks and select high-performing students who can benefit from flexible, affordable financing.

How can EdAid help you?

We’re making it easier to pay for education. EdAid enables students to access world-class education without having to pay the full tuition up front.

No need to worry about how much interest you’re accruing as you study or who your loan might be sold to. Your monthly payments go straight back to the people who supported you - your school! We facilitate these payments to your school to make things as seamless as possible.

For students, our support goes beyond a financing agreement. We’ve lived through the challenge of paying for education. We exist to make payment as affordable and painless as possible.

How did you come up with this idea?

The team at EdAid are just like you. They funded their way through university while working part-time jobs and they took out student loans. Like millions of students, they have struggled to repay their loans but have finally started to clear the debt. They have built a fairer, more affordable way to pay for higher education and jump-start a career.

How do I sign up for a payment plan with EdAid?

Students may only enrol in an EdAid payment plan once they have been selected by their school for an EdAid Payment Plan We partner with universities around the world to offer these Payment Plans, but your application needs to come from an education provider that is currently offering EdAid Payment Plans. EdAid financing is a form of financial aid. Please speak to your admissions teams for more information.

What happens if I can't afford to make my payments?

We work with our students to understand each individual’s situation; we know life happens and finances can be stressful. Having said that, if a student who is eligible to pay refuses to do so, then EdAid will seek to recover the outstanding payments.

Where is EdAid based?

We have a global team, supporting students in 180 countries with offices in Dubai, London, New York, Sydney and Toronto.
