Advanced Learner Loans

Advanced Learner Loans to support the cost of your course fees may be available to the students studying a Level 3 to 6 qualifications and will depend on your:

  • Age
  • Course
  • Nationality or residency status

If you have chosen to fund your course through Student Finance England, you will need to have received a funding letter from the college. These are issued on the basis of having received an offer from the college. As soon as you are in receipt of this letter, you will need to apply for your loan so that is it in place prior to enrolling on the course. If you have not yet had your loan approved – or even not applied for a loan – at the time of enrolment, then the key facts to consider are below.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I enrol without evidence of my loan approval?

Yes, you can, but you will have to sign up for a Direct Deb­it that acts as a guar­an­tee that you will pay for the course your­self if your loan is not approved.

Can the college help me with my application?

Yes, help and assis­tance is avail­able in the Infor­ma­tion, Advice and Guid­ance team.

What happens if I am still awaiting approval and have sufficient funds to cover the course fees?

If you have not received approval by the last week of Octo­ber, please dis­cuss this with the Infor­ma­tion Team so we can help resolve any out­stand­ing issues with your appli­ca­tion in good time. You will not be allowed to attend your course if your loan is still not approved and you have not start­ed to pay your fees.
