Learner Loans

Start a new career with the help of a learner loan.

Who can apply for an Advanced Learner (19+) Loan?

  • You need to be a UK resident
  • You need to be funding an approved course that is Level 3, 4, 5 and 6
  • You need to be aged 19 or above

You can apply for up to four loans and you can get more than one at the same time (however you can only apply once for an Access to Higher Education Diploma).

Also if you use an Advanced Learner Loan for an Access to Higher Education Diploma, your loan will be written off on completion of your Higher Education course.

When do I pay back my Advanced Learner Loan?

You only start paying back your loan when you are earning £21,000 or more.  Also any outstanding loan balance left over after 30 years is automatically written off. Advanced learner loans give you access to financial support for tuition costs similar to that available in higher education and are administered by Student Finance England.

Advanced Learner Loans are paid directly to us to pay for your learning. They are not means tested or subject to credit checks and anybody who meets the criteria will be able to apply for a loan regardless of their current employment status.
