    • Student Finance England

      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 (these will be available shortly). To apply on line click here.
