Advanced Learner Loan

    • Thread Starter

    Hiya! Would appreciate any input.
    I've taken out a loan for Access to HE course.
    All the information I was given when applying (ie T&Cs etc) is that I start paying back when I earn 21k a year (or over), and that my loan will be written off once I get my degree.

    I've now heard mentioned that the only way to have my loan written off is if I start Uni immediately after I finish my Access course. So as I finish it in June 2017, I will need to start Uni in Sept 2017 in order to have the loan written off in the future, once I achieve my degree.

    This is real news for me and a bit worrying as I was meaning to apply this round but to defer to 2018.

    Anyone can tell me what's truth and what's speculation? I called Student Finance and wasn't able to get any answer other than "dunno, it's common knowledge I think".

    Thanks in advance for any help
