Advanced Learning Loans

Unfortunately, we are currently unable to offer Advanced Learning Loans due to government changes to the way funding is provided. We have provided the information below for reference. 

Advanced Learning Loans are available for AAT Advanced and Professional courses. These loans should cover the full cost of Advanced and Professional courses including a contribution to exam fees.

Am I Eligible?

These loans are provided by the government, so as you can imagine there are some ‘strings’ attached. This includes a requirement to evidence your learning and progression – details of this are shown on our Factsheet which you can access here

The process is quite straight forward. From Autumn 2016 you can submit our enrolment form to us. We then arrange for a ‘funding letter’ to be sent to you which you then forward to the Student Loan Company along with your loan application, which is much easier if completed online via the Student Loan Company website (details will be sent in your funding letter).

Don’t panic, we’ll guide you through the process.

Getting a Loan doesn’t depend on your household income and there’s no credit check. You won’t have to pay anything back until you’re earning over £21,000 a year. Once you earn over this amount you pay back 9% of the earnings you receive above this figure.
