    Hello,
    I have applied to study Access to HE law starting September 2016 and due to my financial situation I will have to take out an advanced learner loan. However, I am unsure of the implications this will cause the following year when applying for a loan to further my studies at university. From what I gather the Gov website states I will be eligible for another loan as I will be going on to study at a higher level but the website has failed to highlight if there will be any implications. Will the amount I get suffer due to the previous loan? Will I definitely be able to receive a loan?

    The two systems are independent. Having an ALL wont affect your application for HE student finance in any way.

    What will happen though is that when you've completed your degree your ALL for your Access course will be wiped - the debt will disappear completely if you finish a degree. https://www.gov.uk/advanced-learner-loan/repayments . The only debt you'll be left with after your degree will be the debt accrued from your degree student loans.
