Advanced Learner Loans

Advanced Learner Loans

Advanced Learner Loans are similar to higher education loans, helping students aged 19 or over and studying a level 3 or above course pay for further education rather than having to pay upfront. You will only need to start to repay the loan once you have finished your course and are earning over £21,000 a year.

If you pay for an Access to HE course using an Advanced Learner Loan and then go on to complete a Higher Education course, the Student Loans Company will write off the balance on the Advanced Learner Loan.

We recommend visiting out Money Management Service page HERE or speaking to a member of the team before you apply for an Advanced Learner Loan. You may have other options available to help financial support your course. The Money Management Service team can provide you with all the options available to help you make an informed decision.
