Hello all,

I am undertaking a GDL in September and I was advised by LJMU that Barclays and the Co-op offer Loans to fund the course, however, I received a letter back from the Co-op stating the loan is not eligible for this course.

Is anyone else having the same problem? I haven't heard from Barclays yet.

Thanks

Taken from the directgov website:

Other times you can't use a Professional and Career Development Loan include, to help pay for:

•a foundation or access course used as a step towards a degree course (however, a stand-alone foundation course that leads to employment in its own right would be eligible)
•the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL, otherwise known as the Common Professional Examination or CPE) as this is a course that can lead to the Legal Practice Course (LPC) or Bar Vocational Course (BVC)•careers advice or help with job hunting
•the costs of running or starting up a business (for example, marketing or buying a franchise licence)
•a course from a learning provider based in the European Union if an equivalent course is available in the UK
•a course from a learning provider based outside the European Union if an equivalent course is available within the EU (including the UK)
It appears to me that LJMU have misinformed you. Apologies for being the bearer of bad news.

Thanks for your help! I think they may of changed their terms rather then mislead though as i have seen forum discussions on which bank is better to use; I guess the Co-op are clamping down! Do you know if Barclays will do it or will it be the same? I know BPP has its own banking fund, but its 2K more to go there! :eek:
