Full-time Parents' Learning Allowance

What's available

The maximum Parents’ Learning Allowance is:

  • £1,963 for the 2024 to 2025 academic year
  • £1,915 for the 2023 to 2024 academic year

How much they can get is based on their household income.


This doesn’t need to be paid back, unless they leave their course early.


How it’s paid


We’ll send the student a letter to confirm what they’ll get and when they’ll get it. It’s paid into their bank account in three instalments, usually at the same time as any other student finance they get.
