If you are aged 19-23 and have already attained a Level 3 qualification, then the course will be co-funded by the Government and cost you £1,500.
If you are aged 24+, the cost is £3,000 but you would be eligible for a 24+ Advanced Learning Loan which will cover the cost of the course tuition fees, so you won’t have to pay any upfront costs. What’s more, if you complete a university degree, then your loan for the Access course will be written off.
