19+ Funding

Do I have to pay for my course?

Yes, if you are studying a Level 1 or 2 and you are aged 19 or over you can apply for financial assistance

If you are studying a Level 3, 4, 5 or 6 and you are aged 19 or over, then you are entitled to a 19+ Advanced Learning Loan.

Am I eligible for an Advance Learner Loan?

To qualify you will need to be:

  • aged 19 and over on the first day of the course
  • a resident in the UK for 3 years prior to the start of the course
  • enrolling on a course at level 3 and above, such as: A levels, Access to HE Diplomas, other Diplomas and Certificates

Most learners aged 19 and over, studying at level 3, 4, 5 or 6 will qualify for these new loans (minimum £300) from the UK Government.

The accessibility to this means that you can learn a new skill, improve your knowledge and start a new career path without needing to pay the course fees upfront.  You only start to pay back the loan once you have finished your course and you’re earning over £21,000. Until then you do not need to pay back anything, but you can make voluntary repayments at any time. If you are given a loan to cover the cost of your Access to Higher Education course and then you progress to successfully complete your degree, the Government will write off the loan that covered your Access course.

Repaying the Advance Learner Loan

Your monthly repayments will be based on your income, not what you borrowed. You’ll only start making repayments once you earn more than £404 per week, £1,750 per month or £21,000 per year and you would pay 9% of your income over £21,000

Here’s an example:

Salary: £25,000

Minimum salary level: £21,000

Salary on which loan repayment calculated: £4,000

Weekly repayment: £6.92

If for any reason your income falls below £21,000 – perhaps due to a career break or unemployment – your repayments are automatically suspended. They will only start again when you earn over £21,000 a year.
