Advanced Learner Loans

How do I repay my loan?

Repaying an Advanced Learner Loan is straight forward:

  • Monthly repayments are calculated based on your income, not what you borrow.
  • You’ll only start making repayments when your income is more than £480 per week, £2,083 per month or £25,000 per year.
  • Your repayments will stop if your income drops below £25,000 a year.
  • Your annual repayment amount will be 9% of any income you earn over  £25,000.
  • Monthly repayments are made directly to the Student Loans Company through the tax system.
  • You have the right to make payments or to pay back your loan in full at any time without incurring penalties.
  • Any balances outstanding are written off after 30 years.


How do I apply?
