Advanced Learner Loan

What is it?

  • A minimum loan amount is £300.

  • A loan can be taken out to pay the full or partial amount of the tuition fees.

  • Household income does not hinder your ability to apply.

  • There is no credit check involved.

  • Interest on the loans is low and linked to inflation.

  • Any balance outstanding will be written off after 30 years.

Getting a loan doesn't depend on your household income and you only start paying your loan back once you start earning over £27,295 per year. 

If your Level 3 course is an Access to Higher Education course and you go on to successfully complete an undergraduate degree then your Advanced Learner Loan will be written off!
