I am looking to getting back into study after several years away. I am thinking of doing an Access to HE either Science, Social Science, etc.
I have never applied for an advanced learner loan funding before from Student Finance England and never applied for a Higher Education Funding before from Student Finance England.
Is it true that previous qualifications would not prevent me from applying for and being awarded my first Advanced Learner Loan towards an Access to HE course and have this written off once completing an approved Higher Education course?
I already have an Access to HE in Health Studies awarded I think in 2003 (self funded) and a Diploma of Higher Education in Health Care Studies in 2007 (NHS funded). I also have an NVQ 2 accounting awarded in 1997 and an AS-level Law in 2009 and GCSE maths and English in 2014.
Sorry to jump on this post! I am hoping to start an Access to HE Health Sciences course in September. I already have an LLB Law with Business degree which I completed in 2008. I am hoping to do a BSc Speech and Language degree however as its been over a decade since I completed my degree, I want to do an access course before.Will I still be eligible for an Advanced Learner Loan even though I already have a degree? I had a student loan for my previous degree and did not have to pay for fees because of my familiy's low income. I was 19 when I started that degree. If i then go on to study a speech and language degree will the Advanced Learner Loan be written off?Also, do you know if there is any other financial support available whilst studying on the Access course?Thanks in advance.
