Advanced Learner Loans

 

If you live in England and you are 19 years old or older when you start a course of further education, you may be entitled to an Advanced Learner Loan to cover your course fees.

The loan is easy to apply for, does not take your household income into account and does not involve a credit check. It will fund your college course at Level 3 and above, including Advanced and Higher Apprenticeships.

You only start to pay back the loan once you’ve finished your course and you’re earning over £21,000. Until then you don’t need to pay back anything, but you can make voluntary repayments at any time.

Please note: The Advanced Learner Loan will be available to people aged 19+ from 1 August 2016. If you are applying to start a course at Lambeth College prior to this date you will only be eligible for the loan if you are aged 24+.
