Statistics at SLC

SLC publishes official statistics about the financial support received by by students/learners and the progress of student loan balances and repayment.

Anouncements

In adherence to government rulings during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and with staff working remotely, we are currently unable to produce our full suite of statistics. This decision has been made, taking into account the three pillars of the Code of Practice for Statistics (Trustworthiness, Quality and Value) and following recent guidance from the UK Statistics Authority on changes to statistical outputs during the coronavirus outbreak.

Giving everyone access to statistics at the same time remains a fundamental principle of the Code and full transparency remains essential. Any changes to our normal, scheduled data releases will be updated to this page as soon as these are known and full data will be published as soon as is practical.

The changes to upcoming releases at present are as follows:
