Professional & Career Development Loans

If you are looking to return to study, Professional & Career Development Loans could help you to pay for learning which enhances your job skills or career prospects. You are able to borrow an amount between £300 and £10,000 from participating banks.

Professional & Career Development Loans are bank loans so you do have to pay the loan back once you have completed your course. You do not pay interest on the loan for the period that you are in learning.
