Invest in your future!

If you are returning to education to study a course at Barnsley College at Level 3 or above and are aged 19 or over you may qualify for an Advanced Learner Loan.

Advanced Learner Loans help people aged 19 and over to study vocational, technical and professional qualifications. Taking out a loan will provide you with the fees to pay for a course that could lead you into your dream career.

These loans help to pay the fees charged by approved colleges and training organisations in England and are only repayable when you are earning £21,000 or over. The amount you can loan depends on the course you decide to study, and you don’t have to borrow the full cost of your course, as you can pay for all or part of your tuition fee yourself.

Christopher Webb, Chief Executive and Principal at Barnsley College, said: “We understand that having to finance your own studies can be difficult. Here at Barnsley College we don’t only offer a wide range of qualifications but also lots of financial support to help our students succeed and go on to achieve the career they want.”

We encourage learners to seek independent financial advice from The Money Advice Service at
