Education Loan Scheme

Re-member your first… day at college? 

“I joined Member First CU when I was 17. I started by saving €20 a week which came in very handy when I applied for a college loan to go to DCU. I had a part time job which paid for my day to day expenses. The Education Loan paid for everything else – books, fees etc. I find Member First CU great. Many of them know you by name which is really nice. They’ve helped me so much in the last seven years. I’d be lost without them.”
