    I’m currently looking at completely an Access to HE course and there’s an option to apply for an Advanced Learner Loan. How does this work with student finance as I want to apply for a degree shortly after?

    Can you take out the Advanced Learner Loan AND get a student loan? (Obviously at a later date)

    Most people pay with Advanced Learner Loans.
    They are administered by the same company.


    If you use it to pay for your access course, then liability to repay is the same i.e no repayments till you start earning over £21k and then 9% f the excess. they are for further education.

    Student finance is for Higher education i.e degree level courses.
    ALL do not affect your entitlement to SFE loans.
    You can get funding for a degree +1 gift year.
    It all gets added to the same account.

    In a lot of cases if you complete your full degree course successfully, then the money owing for your Access course is written off.
    Make sure you pick the right Access course.
