Thinking about further education?

If you’re starting a course this year it may be fundable via an Advanced Learner Loan. These loans help you to pay the fees charged by colleges and training organisations.
If you are aged 19 or over and studying at Level 3 to 6, you may be eligible. It’s easy to apply, your household income isn’t taken into account and there’s no credit check. With an ALLoan you also won’t have to pay anything back until your income is over £25,000 a year. If you are applying for an Access to HE course, the Advanced Learner Loan may be written off when you graduate.* 

Do I qualify?

You can quickly check if you are eligible for an Advanced Learner Loan by answering a few questions.

These loans do not cover Degrees or other forms of Higher Education (HE). For information on funding for HE go to www.gov.uk/student-finance


How much can I get?

The amount you can get depends on your course, the fees charged and maximum amounts set by the government.
The minimum loan amount for a course is £300. You can take out a loan for the full amount of your course fee or you can pay all or part of the fee yourself.
