    Hi guys, I'm in a bit of a predicament.

    I have recently graduated from a degree in English Literature, the tuition of which was funded by student loans. I now wish to continue study in a much more vocational way at college (South Thames to be precise). Obviously I can't afford over two and a half grand a year for three years on what I earn (barely over 14,000, which would dry up considerably if I took up full time study), but it is a really important step in my career which I can't afford to miss.

    Does anyone know of any scheme that would allow me to continue my study, even though I haven't even started paying off my old student loan yet? I'm aware of how this sounds, but any constructive advice would be much appreciated.

    Thanks

    Fred
