However... Please note that we recommend that you speak to us to discuss your objectives this we can ensure that these programs are suited to you.
We never advise to enrol on more than one course at any one time (you are entering into a student loan with a commitment to pay back).
How do you pay the loan back?
You will only start making repayments if your income is more than £25,000 per year.
Please see below an example of how much you could payback based on meeting the salary thresholds.
Repayments start the April after you complete or withdraw from your course.
You pay back your loan (plus interest) when you finish your course and earn more than £25,000 a year. Your repayments will stop if your income drops below £25,000 a year.
Your annual repayment amount will be 9% of any income you earn over £25,000.
Your monthly repayments would be:
£15 a month - if you earned £27,000 a year
£37 a month - if you earned £30,000 a year

When you apply for your chosen course, you are also applying for a student loan to cover the full course amount. The external course provider can explain in more detail if you require further information. Should you decide that you no longer wish to continue with the course, you may be liable to pay back the FULL course fees, even if you don't complete the course.
This is why your course providers have a very strict and comprehensive enrolment process to ensure that the right students are signing up for the courses. Please only apply if you can commit 100% to the course layout, times and dates. Interested? Get in touch.
