Advanced Learner Loans help with the costs of further-education courses. If a learner is 19 or over and studying an approved course at Level 3, 4, 5 or 6 at an approved college or training provider in England, they can apply for funding.


Eligibility for the loan doesn’t depend on a learner’s income and there are no credit checks.  Learners can get more information on what’s available and find out how to apply on our Student Room zone.
