A potential option that I am strongly considering instead of uni is a career in scuba diving. There's a learning centre that offers a training course and I wondered as it is still a full time course, with a recognised qualification at the end, if I am eligible for a student loan. I have been on the student finance website but haven't found any useful information. Can someone help?

To qualify for a student loan, you need to meet these conditions:

"Your university or college

This should be a university, college or other institution that offers a qualifying course.
Your course

This must be in the UK and one of the following:

  • a first degree, eg BA, BSc or BEd
  • a Foundation Degree
  • a Certificate of Higher Education
  • a Diploma of Higher Education (DipHE)
  • a Higher National Certificate (HNC)
  • a Higher National Diploma (HND)
  • a Postgraduate Certificate of Education (PGCE)
  • Initial Teacher Training

Check with your university or college that your course is recognised."
