19+ Advanced Learner Loans

19+ Advanced Learner Loan

Money worries don’t have to get in the way of achieving your goals and ambitions. Depending on the course you want to study, you may be eligible to fund your studies with a 19+ Advanced Learner Loan.

The 24+ Advanced Learning Loan is changing

If you are aged 19 and over and are looking to study a Level 3 or above Further Education course, from May 2016 you may be able to apply for a low-interest 19+ Advanced Learner Loan to cover the cost of tuition fees for courses starting from August 2016!

Advanced Learner Loans don’t depend on your income, there are no credit checks and you don’t need to repay anything until you’ve finished your course and are earning over £21,000 a year.

Many of the Adult and Part Time Courses available at Trafford College offer the 19+ Advanced Learner Loan option. To see if your course qualifies take a look at our Adult and Part -Time Course guide.
