Funding Learning

 

Student Finance

You may be able to borrow money to help pay university or college tuition fees (for part-time or full time courses) and to help with living costs. You’ll usually only get student finance if you’re doing your first higher education qualification – even if your previous course was self-funded. Click on “Eligibility” below to check whether you, and your course are eligible.

You might get extra money on top of this, for example if you’re on a low income, are disabled or have children. You can use the “Student Finance Calculator” to estimate your student loan and any extra help you might be entitled to.

You start repaying once you earn over a certain amount. The size of your monthly repayments will depend on how much you earn, not what you owe.

Advanced Learner Loans

You can apply for an Advanced Learner Loan to help with the costs of a course at a college or training provider in England. Your eligibility depends on your course, college or training provider, age and your nationality. Click on “Eligibility” below to check you, and your course are eligible.

How much you get, and how many advanced learner loans you can have depends on your course and its’ fees. The minimum loan you can get is £300 and is paid directly to your college or training provider.

You may apply to get money from the Loan Bursary Fund after you’ve received a letter approving your Advanced Learner Loan. The money can help pay for things like: accommodation and travel; course materials and equipment; childcare; classroom assistance for a disability or learning difficulty – once you’re assessed by your college or training provider.
