The Hiridjee Family Student Loan is available for two female members of our Khoja community to pursue higher education.
As many universities are closed during the global lockdown of COVID-19 Coronavirus, our Education Department has decided that the Loan schemes available to our community, apart from the Hiridjee loan, would be put on hold until further notice. This means we will not be releasing any funds for the unforeseeable future on all other loans and will only accept applications for the Hiridjee loan scheme. Therefore the Hiridjee loan is now open and ready to receive your application. The application process is outlined below. If you find universities are being deferred to Feb 2021, please don't worry, we urge you to continue the application process and keep regular communication with us, and upon confirmation of your offer and being accepted for the Hiridjee loan we will be able to pay the university your tuition fees when it is required to do so.

Step 1 - “So why do you want to become a doctor?”
It’s the question you’ll be asked so many times throughout both your application to study medicine and throughout your medical education and career. So before I tell you a bit about myself and my path into medicine, as well as tips on helping you do the same, I feel it’s pivotal that this is the question we need to address first.
