Career Development Loans

    Loans are usually offered at a reduced interest rate and the government pays interest while you’re studying.


    To apply you must:

    • be 18 or over
    • have been living in the UK for at least 3 years before your course starts
    • plan to work in the UK, European Union (EU) or European Economic Area (EEA) after the course

    Courses must:

    • only last up to 2 years, or 3 years if they include 1 year of work experience
    • be provided by an organisation on the Professional Career and Development Loan Register - check with your course provider
    • help with your career - they don’t have to lead to a qualification

    You can’t get Professional and Career Development Loans for first full-time degrees but you can apply for student finance.
