24+ Advanced Learning Loans

You can apply for a 24+ Advanced Learning Loan to help with the costs of a college or training course if you’re 24 or older.

The course must have started on or after 1 August 2013 and be eligible – i.e a Level 3 or 4 course (e.g A Levels).

Loans have to be paid back. Repayments don’t start until April 2016 and you won’t have to pay anything back until you earn more than £21,000 a year.

The loan doesn’t depend on your income and there are no credit checks. You can get independent money advice from the Money Advice Service.
