    Hi, I'm 18 and due to personal reasons I had to drop out of A Levels a month before my exams were due. I just recently made the decision to go back into education this September and opted for the Access Course (Humanities) so I can go to uni next Sep. I was wondering, even though Im under 19 do I still have to pay for the course? The guy that interviewed me just casually mentioned that I shouldn't forget to apply for the advanced learner loan but I thought that you only had to pay if you were 19 or over.

    You'll have to check with the college. My understanding is that if you're under a certain age and don't have a level 3 course, you can get them free.
