Important notes

Approved courses are not eligible for any concession rates if you are aged 19 or over at the time of enrolment. Additional fees for courses will also still need to be paid separately and are not covered by the loan.

You should consider your own circumstances and look at all the options. You can get impartial money advice from The Money Advise Service www.moneyadviceservice.org.uk
