Advanced Learner Loan
If you are aged 19 years and over and are looking to study an Access course, you may be able to apply for a low-interest Advanced Learner Loan to cover the cost of your tuition fees. If you complete this and then go on to complete a course in Higher Education, the remaining balance, including any interest on it, will be written off.
