    Welcome to money.SE . Too little detail here. What is the loan rate and monthly payment? What kind of job will you get? How does that job's income compare to cost of living in the area you'll be? Once we know this, some good answers will follow. (Also pls add a country tag.) Commented Sep 9, 2015 at 18:41

1 Answer 1


You should invest a trivial (<500$USD) amount of money in a stock portfolio. If you aren't able to make more on the market than the interest rates of your loans, you are losing money. This question has discussed this topic as well.
