Advanced Learner Loans were introduced by the Government to give people financial support for tuition costs and mean that if someone takes out a loan they will not have to pay for their course or qualification in advance. The loan is only repaid once they have completed the course and are earning more than £21,000 a year.
Who can get an Advanced Learner Loan?
Individuals are eligible for an Advanced Learning Loan if they:
- Are over 19 at the start of their course (there is no upper age limit)
- Area UK resident
- Have not previously had a loan to do the same qualification type and level of qualification
Loans are not means-tested or subject to credit checks and anyone who meets the criteria can apply for a loan irrespective of their employment status.
