You will have to pay monthly instalments during the course of your study.
Some guidelines
It is wise to look for a vehicle with good standard and at the same time not too costly. Once you are done with your education, you can buy costly cars after getting a good job. So, there is no point to financially burden you in your student life. You should make use of online calculators, available with most of online lenders, to calculate the approximate monthly expenses including your expenses related to studies, monthly instalments of your loan repayment and other expenses. And make sure that fits within your budget. You must make a good survey of loan market with lenders offering auto loans to find a suitable loan. Don't judge the loans just on the basis of interest rate and amount offered. You must look for penalties charged in case of early repayment which reduces the overall amount paid as interest. It is important because you will look to payoff borrowed amount as early as possible after getting a job
