  1. for those students whose studying in a public universities wherein tuition fees are free can we still be able to apply?

  2. sTUDENTS that are enrolled to public universities and colleges are not eligible for this I-study that’s what the landbank representative told me in their branch here.And as far as i understand for the gadget loan you need to have an account with them where you deposit so that the gadget loan will be debited from your own account.
