RQF Courses & 19+ Loans

RQF courses and 19+ loans make anything possible

Many of our students are looking to change career and that's why they’ve enrolled on one of our vocational courses. With the help of a 19+ Advanced Learner Loan, you too can enrol on a life changing RQF distance learning course without paying a penny up front.

What is a 19+ Advanced Learner Loan?

The Government has introduced 19+ Advanced Learner Loans to help learners aged 19 and over, in further education, pay a college’s or training organisation’s fee. Getting a loan doesn’t depend on your household income and there’s no credit check. You won’t have to pay anything back until you’re earning over £25,000 a year. Once you earn over £25,000 a year you’ll pay back 9% of the earnings you’ll receive above this amount.

Is there a maximum amount of loan available?

19+ Advanced Learner Loans can entirely cover the fees of RQF Stonebridge courses. However, if you wish to take out a smaller amount (minimum £300) and fund the rest yourself, you are able to do this.

To be eligible for the loan you must be:

  • 19 or older on the first day of your course (there’s no upper age limit)
  • living in the UK on the first day of your course, and have lived in the UK, the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man for 3 years immediately before starting your course on, or after, 1 August 2013

Is a 19+ Advanced Learner Loan available to students with existing qualifications?

Yes, previous qualifications that learners have achieved do not affect their ability to apply for a loan to gain new qualifications.
