Top Frequently Asked Questions about 19+ Advanced Learner Loans

“Can I afford to pay the loan back?”

The way repayments are worked out is directly linked to how much you earn, not how much you borrow. You only pay back money when you are earning more than £25,000 a year. You then pay 9% of the money you earn over £25,000, before tax.

 

“I want to go on to university. I can’t pay back two loans.”

If you go on to higher education, any government loans you take out will be combined with your Advanced Learner Loan. Your repayments won’t change.

 

“If something happens and I can’t finish my course, will I end up paying for it anyway?”

No payment from your loan will be made to Acacia Training until you’ve attended your course for more than two weeks. If you leave after more than two weeks, you’ll have to pay back any loan payments that have been made, based on the length of time you attended your course. Once you stop attending, the loan payments will stop.
