Students may be eligible to apply for an Advanced Learning Loan. These loans help you to pay the tuition fees charged by approved colleges and training providers in England. Most learners at Level 3 will qualify for these loans from the UK Government. It’s easy to apply, your household income is not taken into account and there is no credit check. You will not have to pay anything back until your income is over £21,000 per year. Students who go on to complete a university course will have their Advanced Learning loan written off. For further information or to apply for a loan visit student finance at www.gov.uk/advancedlearningloans
