24+ Advanced Learning Loan

If you’re 24 years of age or over and planning to start a course at Level 3 or above from September 2013, you may be able to apply for a 24+ Advanced Learning Loan.

It’s easy to apply for a loan

Apply for your course at the College in the normal way.  Once you have been interviewed, assessed and the College has confirmed there is a place available, we will then provide you with the information you will need to make a loan application. 

The loan application process is simple, there is no credit rating check and it doesn’t depend on your household income.  Once you’ve applied and your loan has been approved, you don’t need to do anything to pay the course fee or to organise repayments as it is all done for you. 

Repaying the loan

The amount you pay back each month depends on your income and not how much your course costs.  You will not have to pay anything back until your income is over £21,000 a year.

If you are planning to study an Access to HE Course at the College from September 2013, you may not have to pay back the loan if you complete the Access course and progress to and complete an HE course.
