Professional and Career Development Loans

Professional and Career Development Loans are bank loans that can be used to help pay for work related learning.

These loans can be used to pay course fees or other costs such as travel and living expenses. You can also use these loans to supplement other forms of support such as grants or bursaries but these loans should only be considered as an option once all other student funding options have been investigated.
