You can apply for an Advanced Learner Loan to help with the costs of a course at a college or training provider in England. Loan eligibility does not depend on your income and there are no credit checks.
Are you interested in changing your career path? Do you have a dream career that has never quite happened? Are you looking for career progression? Do you want to study at university level?
Then our Access to HE (higher education) Diplomas will prepare you for studying at degree level and are ideal if you haven’t been in education for a while. These courses are the perfect stepping-stone if you need to top up your existing qualifications or obtain the required amount of UCAS points for your chosen degree course.
An Access to HE diploma is a nationally recognised qualification. Like A-Levels, once you complete your course, the access to HE diploma is a full Level 3 qualification. This is accepted by universities. They are specifically designed to support students aged 19+ back to study, gain study skills and to secure the career of their dreams.
We offer a variety of access to HE courses, with each one specifically designed to enable learners to develop the skills necessary for academic success and progression to university and beyond.
Student Finance England will ‘write off’ any outstanding Advanced Learner Loan balances you owe for an Access to HE course once you complete a higher education course. This means you do not have to repay it.
The higher education course must be eligible for student finance.
