These loans help you to cover the cost of your course fees – whether that’s a full or part-time course or training at Levels 3 to 6. And you won’t even have to start paying it back until you’re earning over £21,000 a year.

Who is eligible for an Advanced Learner Loan?

You can apply for this loan if you are:

  • Aged 19 or above on the first day of your course
  • Studying or training on an eligible course at Level 3* to 6
  • A resident of the UK for the past three years

*If you are 19-23 and are studying your first full level 3, you may be able to get a grant to help pay for your course.

How Do I Apply?

  1. Apply for your chosen course at Presidency London College.
  2. If your application is successful, we will send you an offer letter; which will outline how to apply for the loan (via Student Finance England) and the maximum amount you can apply for.
  3. Complete either an online or paper-based application form.
  4. Once your application has been approved you’ll be informed (usually in two weeks)
  5. Online applications will be processed within two to four days with a valid UK passport. Other applications will be processed in two to four weeks.

For all eligible courses the loan will be up to 100% of the cost of the training, including course and material fees. You will have one loan to cover the length of your course, so do bear this in mind when budgeting.
