Advanced Learner loan

A Government loan scheme is available for learners aged 19 or over and studying Level 3 – 6 qualifications.

It’s easy to apply for and it does not take your household income into account, nor does it involve a credit check. Once you have been offered a place on a course, we will send you a learning and funding information letter. Repayment of the loan only starts when you are earning £25,725 a year/per annum or more.

The following people are eligible:

  • Aged 19+ at the start of their course;
  • Have been a resident in the UK for three years prior to the start of their course;
  • Are studying with an Education and Skills Funding Agency provider, such as Yeovil College;
  • Undertaking an eligible Level 3, 4, 5 or 6 further education course.

How much can I borrow?

That all depends on the type of course and its associated fees. The minimum amount is £300.
