Advanced Learner Loans

Advanced Learner Loans are available to students studying approved courses at level 3 or above.

Advanced Learner Loans are available to students aged 19 and over who are enrolling on eligible courses at Level 3 and above. These loans cover the cost of tuition so you will not have to pay all the tuition fees upfront.

It is easy to apply – loan eligibility does not depend on your income and there are no credit checks.

You are expected to start repaying your loan in the April after you have completed or left your course. However you’ll only start making repayments when you start earning more than £25,725 a year. Repayments will stop if your annual income falls below this.

If you apply for an Advanced Learner Loan to help with the costs of an Access to Higher Education course at Newham and then move on to and complete a Higher Education course, the outstanding balance owed on the loan gets written off.
