    1. Applications received include processed and unprocessed applications but exclude those Cancelled, Deleted, In Data Entry and Ineligible (except where stated).
    2. Volumes are rounded to the nearest ten, except for the Total loan amount awarded, which are rounded to the nearest hundred. Figures may not sum due to rounding. '~' Indicates a base value of fewer than five for the cohort combination.
    3. The sum of applications may not equal the actual total number of applications as there may be duplicates in the learner breakdowns categories and qualification levels.
    4. From 2013/14 to 2015/16 loans were available for learners ages 24 or older studying full Level 3 and Level 4 qualifications. From 2016/17, advanced learner loans were extended to learners aged 19 or older on the first day of their course and studying at Levels 3 to 6, and are not directly comparable to earlier years.
    5. Applications closed on the following 31 July for each academic year respectively. Final application data is as at 30 September for each academic year (August to July).
    6. 2018/19 data for provider type 'Other public funded' has been revised here to include around 30 applications (received/approved) which were previously included in the 'Private Sector public funded' category.
