Advanced Learner Loan Bursary

What is the 19+ Advanced Learner Loan Bursary and how can it help me?

The 19+ Advanced Learner Loans Bursary (19+ ALLB) is designed to support students from lower income households who have been approved for a 19+ Advanced Learner Loan and need additional financial support with the cost of transport and/or childcare.

The 19+ ALLB is awarded on a discretionary basis and due to its limited nature, meeting the criteria does not necessarily guarantee an award. The bursary fund is means tested and operates on a first-come, first-served basis.

What are the limitations of the 19+ ALLB?

The bursary fund cannot be used to help with tuition fees.

Am I eligible for the bursary?

Students must have been approved for a 19+ Advanced Learning Loan before applying for the 19+ ALLB. 

Students need to have a household income of less than £28,000 to be eligible. Income of any spouse or co-habiting partner will be taken into consideration.
