Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

    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.) – JTP - Apologise to Monica Sep 9 '15 at 18:41

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.
