Which courses are eligible for finance?

Finance decision

Your application will be assessed based on various factors including eligibility, credit history and affordability and Duologi will let you know the outcome of their decision in just a few seconds. It’s important to know that when applying for finance a full credit check is made and this is recorded on your credit file.

Once approved, you just need to digitally sign your credit agreement, pay your deposit and then wait for your order to arrive.

In a very few cases, your application may be referred to a lender for manual underwriting. In such cases you’ll be notified by email of the credit decision within 24 hours. If you’re not approved for finance it could be for a variety of reasons. You should gain a copy of your credit file and this will be able to give you more information.

Repaying the loan

Your first direct debit payment will be taken about 30 days after you have received your purchase. This will show on your statement as a payment to Specialist Lending Ltd. You have the right to repay all or part of the loan early at any time.


There is a 14-day cooling off period where you can withdraw from the credit agreement after signing your documents. If you wish to do this, please contact Trade Skills 4U and we can process this for you in line with our main terms and conditions.

A finance agreement does not affect our standard refund and cancellations policy.
