Would I still have a student loan after an apprenticeship?

Hi there, I'm in a bit of a sticky situation with trying to decide what's better to do. I've applied to several UNIs via UCAS and got offers back, but I don't think I'm going to get to results I need in this college course (FYI I'm studying a Level 3 Extended BTEC Diploma in IT), I think I could scrape PPP or PPM by the end but I'm needing DDM which is a significant difference. So I'm looking towards other options too, I'm still actually undecided whether UNI is the right choice for me, there's an apprenticeship starting in September in my old Primary school which is computer based ie networking and admin stuff which is an area I like. So I'm curious if I did that would I lose my student loan? My tutor told me that basically anything I do after this course would be paid via the loan, so I don't want to waste it.

Thanks

Hi Napster,

The Tuition Fee and Maintenance Loans are only available for Higher Education courses.

If you are aged 24 or over you might be able to apply for a +24 Advanced Learning Loan for a Further Education course. Here's some info: https://www.gov.uk/advanced-learning-loans

If you're under 19 you might be entitled to help here: https://www.gov.uk/browse/education/find-course

Hope this helps.
