    Please does anyone know if you can get the over 24 learning loan during a placement year?? I have an UNPAID placement next year and am only entitled to £2483!! (How are we supposed to live off that). Placement is full time so I really don't want to get a part time job on top of that. I'm 27 so hoping I can get the over 24 loan..does anyone know??? Thanks

    No. The 24 + loan is basically the college equivalent of a university tuition fee loan, if you're at university then you don't qualify for one (and even if you did, you can't use it to cover living costs anyway).
