There have been changes to how education courses are funded for learners over 19 years old in 2016/17. Level 3 and above courses will no longer be funded by the Government (unless you are aged 19-23 years old and it is your first full Level 3 qualification) but you may qualify for an Advanced Learner Loan to cover your course fees.
If this loan is to fund an Access to HE Diploma leading to a completed degree, your Advanced Learner Loan will be written off so you don't have to pay it back.
It doesn't matter about your household income or even credit checks to qualify for a loan, and you don't have to pay anything back until you are earning over £21,000 a year.
Loans are available for people living in the UK on the first day of their course and have lived in this country, the Channel Islands of the Isle of Man for three years immediately before this.
Applications for loans will open from 16 May 2016 for courses starting between 1 August 2016 and 31 July 2017. Talk to our centre reception staff to get more details and your course offer letter which will have the information you will need to complete your loan application.
