Access to HE Courses
If on completion of your course you decide to continue your education at university, you can take out an Advanced Learner Loan and then a student loan for Higher Education. Your loans will be rolled into one and only one monthly repayment will be made.
However, if you progress to Higher Education after taking out a loan for an Access to HE Diploma, Student Finance England will ‘write off’ any outstanding Advanced Learner Loan balances you owe for an Access to HE course once you complete a Higher Education course. This means you don’t have
to repay it.
The Higher Education course must be eligible for student finance.
