Want to study but worried about the Cost?

If you're aged 19 or over, live in England and are thinking about further education or training, you might qualify for an Advance Learner Loan.

It's easy to apply and you won't have to pay anything back until you're earning over £25,000 a year. You also won't have to worry about how much you're currently earning as getting an advance learner loan doesn't depend on your income and is not subject to credit checks. You can use your loan to study A-Levels, General courses and Vocational qualifications. We can help you complete your application form at the Adult Enrolment event so you don't have to worry about what information you need or which boxes you need to fill in on the form. Online Courses We have developed a suite of free Level 2 Distance Learning courses which are available to learners who meet the following criteria:

  • Over the age of 19 on the 31st August 2020
  • Reside in the UK with proof of address
  • Have lived in the UK for 3 years
