See the table below for examples of what you would repay, depending on salary band:





So, if you’re paid monthly and earn £2,500 before tax you would repay 9% of the difference between what you earn and what the individual threshold is: £2,500 - £1,750 = £7509% of £750 = £67.50Your loan repayment would be £67 in that month. If your income drops or rises, for example if you receive a bonus, your repayment amount will automatically change to reflect this. You can make voluntary repayments at any time to pay off your loan more quickly.


  • If you’re self-employed you’ll be responsible for making student loan repayments as part of your annual self-assessment tax return.
  • If you’re employed, you don’t need to do anything. Your employer will take your repayments directly off your salary as they do with tax and national insurance contributions.
  • If you stop working, your repayments will stop and only start again when your income is more than £21,000 a year.
  • You’ll be due to start repaying your loan in the April after you leave or finish your course –whichever comes first. If you leave or finish your course before April 2016, you won’t start making repayments until after this date.
  • Any loan remaining 30 years after you’re due to start making repayments will be wiped.
