Are you over 19 years old and want to study for a Level 3 qualification?
Would you like to know more about 19+ Advanced Learning Loans?
If you are over 19 and applying for a course at Level 3 or above, you will need to pay the full course fee – there are no subsidised rates available to 19+ Level 3 learners.
The full course fee covers ALL costs of your course including tuition, exam fee, DBS (where necessary) and linked course resources.
Provided you meet all the criteria for studying at our centres and have been offered a place on your chosen course, there are two ways in which you can meet the cost:
The monthly payment is made directly to Newham Adult Learning Service so you do not have to worry about making payments for your course once your loan is agreed.
Although the loan from the Student Loan Company is repayable, repayments do not apply until you reach an annual income of approximately £25,000 and, in any case, at that point monthly repayments are very small.
Newham Adult Learning Service fully supports the Student Loan application process for students as we are aware it can be daunting for those who have not applied for this type of loan before. If you are thinking about taking a Level 3 course and would like more information about applying for a loan, or have decided to take a loan and would like help with the application process, please contact:
You can apply for a 19+ Advanced Learning Loan in respect of any course which is identified by thelogo.
