Advanced Learning Loans

A Short Video “A Guide to Advance Learning Loans”

24 Plus Advanced Learning Loans are similar to higher education loans, but will be introduced for the further education learner, to qualify you’ll need to be:

• Aged 24 & over at the start of their course.
• A resident in the UK.
• Have not previously had a loan to do the same qualification type & level of qualification.
• Studying at Level 3 or Level 4(including QCF Certificates & Diplomas, Access to HE, A-Levels & Advanced & Higher Apprenticeships).

The loans are not means tested or credit checked and any individual who meets the criteria will be able to apply for a loan whether they’re employed or unemployed – the loan will then be paid directly to your selected training provider on your behalf. You don’t pay anything up front for your course fees and if you’re not earning over £21k, you won’t pay anything back either.
