Before applying why not perform a Soft Search Loan Eligibility check:

softsearch is a type of credit search where a lender can get an idea of whether you’re eligible for borrowing by doing a soft search of your credit report. It doesn’t leave a mark like a ‘hard search‘ does.



The calculators use what’s known as ‘soft’ searches on your credit file – you’ll see the search if you check your file, but lenders won’t. To do this companies work with HD Decisions, a data company owned by Experian. For the ‘soft’ search they first have to find your details at the credit bureau (Experian).

To apply please select the “apply for finance of the full amount” option when booking your course on our website.

After you pay your finance deposit, the remaining monthly payments will start 30 days thereafter via direct debit. Your space on the course is reserved only after you make the initial deposit payment, after which you will receive our welcome email within 1 business day.
