    Info from gov.uk website:

    Your age

    There’s no upper age limit for Tuition Fee Loans or grants.

    If you’re 60 or over

    You may get limited funding for Maintenance Loans if all of the following apply:

    • you’re 60 or over on the first day of the first academic year of your course
    • you’re studying full-time
    • your course started on or after 1 August 2016

    The amount you can apply for depends on your household income.
