Advanced Learner Loan

Advanced Learner Loans

If you are age 19+ you could take out an Advanced Learner Loan to help meet the cost of your tuition fees for courses at Level 3 or above.

These loans will work in a similar way to the current loan system for Higher Education, meaning that you will only start to pay the loan back once you have completed your study or training and are earning over £21,000 a year. Repayments start in the April following the completion of your course.

Or, if you complete an Access to Higher Education Diploma and then go on to complete a Higher Education course, the Advanced Learner Loan will be written off.
