Here is how it works
1. CONTACT US
Regardless of whether you have already applied to a university, have already been accepted to it or are merely thinking of studying and just want to get some information, just drop us a line and tell us a little bit about yourself and your goals. We will get back quickly. There are no strings attached.
2. Apply for funding PART I: Preliminary ASSESSMENT
If you think our funding, community, and career development services are helpful for you, you can apply to become a Filentia member. We have a preliminary assessment for you that looks at your personal interests, career goals, and desired degrees. We are also happy to give you feedback on your choices if you need a second opinion.
3. Apply for funding PART II: PROFOUND ASSESSMENT
If we both agree that we are a good match for your career journey, we will ask you to complete a few assessments and share your application documentation with us. We will use this not only to decide whether or not we can invest in your future (to make sure we can deliver on the our promises and provide only the highest level of service, we limit the number of individuals we support) but also to have a strong foundation on which we can base our career advice and coaching services. We do not just talk of personalisation. We mean it.
4. Apply for funding PART III: INTERVIEW
We love data but we are also a little old fashioned. The third step of the process consists of an interview (personal or via Skype) with the Filentia founders. We want to get to know you and give you a chance of getting to know us personally. We are in this together for a long time. And we love our community. So let’s make sure that we have a good feeling about it.
5. Receive confirmation
We will confirm quickly if you are eligible for maintenance fee loan.
6. Get into your dream course
Congratulations — You made it!
7. YOU RECEIVE THE FUNDS
We will pay you the funds monthly as you go through your studies to make sure you do not accumulate interest unnecessarily on funds you don’t use. If you also asked for a tuition fee loan, we will wire that to your university directly.
