    1. From 2013/14 to 2015/16 loans were available for learners ages 24 or older studying full Level 3 and Level 4 qualifications.

    2. Applications received include processed and unprocessed applications but exclude those Cancelled, Deleted, In Data Entry and Ineligible (except where stated)
    3. 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
    4. 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)
