Advanced Learner Loan Bursary Fund

If you’re aged 19 or over and want to study either A-levels, an Access to Higher Education diploma, or a level 3-6 vocational qualification, you can apply for an Advanced Learner Loan to help with course costs.  Application is easy and doesn’t look at your household income, or involve a credit check.
Repayments are linked to earnings not how much you borrow and don’t start until the April following completion of your course, and until you earn more than £25,000pa.  However, you can make voluntary repayments at any time if you prefer.
