    hi there, so i'm currently 20 and applying to do an access course at my local college in september. i've heard about the advanced learner loan and was wondering if you can still get this loan if you already have a levels? i went to college when i left school but left with D's in my subjects which is why i'm doing an access course as i've decided i want to get back into education! is it possible for me to get an advanced learner loan still? i checked on the gov website and it didn't say anything about a levels but just wanted to ask!

    Yes, you can still take out an Advanced Learner Loan if you have A levels.

    Yes you can get the advanced learner load after A levels. There are several former A level students on my course, myself included although I started mine 18 years ago and didn't finish them, it doesn't matter.

    There are at least two on my course who completed their A levels who are only in their early 20's on the course by way of the loan.
