The government is planning to set up student loans that will be open to adults of all ages, and can be used at any time in life, it was announced in the Queen’s Speech.
A ‘Lifelong Loan Entitlement’ would replace the student finance system, allowing adults to apply for up to four years of flexible student loans for full- or part-time courses, both at university and technical level.
We’d like to hear what people think of this Skills and Post-16 Education Bill, as well as from people who would consider applying for such a loan to re-enter formal education.
We’re also interested in hearing from people who have taken out loans in the past to finance education later in life, and whether they believe it was worth it.
