      • Student Finance England

        If you are studying a Higher Education course (HNC, HND, Foundation Degree or Honours Degree) with us, you may be able to borrow money to help pay for your tuition fees and to help with living costs.

        You might get extra money on top of this, for example if you’re on a low income, are disabled or have children.

      • Advanced Learner Loans

        From August 2016 the funding arrangements for learners aged 19 and over and studying Level 3 to Level 6 courses changed. Government funding has been removed and a new loan scheme to help learners fund courses set up.

        This means that rather than having to pay for their course up front, learners have the option of accessing a loan from The Student Loans Company that they will only need to start repaying after they have left the course and are earning over £25,000 per year. Your application must be supported by a ‘Learning and funding information’ letter from the college (you should have received this already by email, if not, please contact us at admissions
