Repaying your student loan
You need to pay back:
- Tuition Fee Loans
- Maintenance Loans
- Postgraduate Loans
You do not need to pay back other student finance, for example grants and bursaries, unless you’ve been paid too much. You still have to repay your student loan if you leave your course early.
This guide is also available in Welsh (Cymraeg).
When you start repaying your loan and how much you pay depends on which repayment plan you’re on.
Keep your contact details up to date in your student loan repayment account so that you can get messages about your loan.
How to repay
How you repay your loan depends on whether you’re employed or self-employed.
You can make extra repayments in your online repayment account and by card, bank transfer or cheque.
Keep your payslips and your P60 for your records - you’ll need them if you want to get a refund.
Sign in to your student loan repayment account if you already have one.
