How you enrol

Enrolling on a qualification has never been easier. The first step is choosing the qualification that’s going to get you where you need to be. To browse our full list of qualifications choose "Courses and qualifications" from the navigation bar above.

Pay by Advanced Learner Loan or pay in full?

Once you have made your qualification choice you can click on the “Enrol” button to be shown two ways to pay for your course. You can either “Pay in full” where you pay for your course up-front using either credit or debit card, or you can pay using a 19+ Advanced Learner Loan. As soon as you have paid for your course, your log-in and password will be sent to you and you can start immediately. For more information on both payment methods, see our "Ways to pay" section.

Either way, once you are on a course page the enrolment process begins by clicking the “Enrol” button and selecting your chosen enrolment option.

To successfully complete the 19+ Advanced Learner Loan process you’ll need to:

  • Be 19 years of age or over
  • Live in England (this facility is not available in Scotland or Wales)
  • Have a valid passport number
  • Have your national insurance number
  • Supply your address details for the last 3 years

With learndirect there’s no need to wait, you can start your course whilst your loan application is being processed, good luck!
