Advanced Learner Loans

Help for learners over 24 studying at Level 3 and above

Advanced Learner Loans give learners in further education and training, studying level 3, 4, 5 and 6 courses (including RQF Certificates and Diplomas) access to financial support for course fees.

This means rather than an individual having to pay for their course up front they have the option of accessing a loan that they will only start to repay once they have left the course and are earning over £25,725.

The loan is available irrespective of the learner’s current employment status and the loan will not be means tested or subject to any credit checks.

Learners aged 19 and over therefore have the option to either:

  • pay the course fees themselves
  • have an employer/sponsor pay the course fees for them
  • apply for an Advanced Learner Loan to help pay for the course fees.
