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.

When you start repaying your loan and how much you pay depend on which repayment plan you’re on.

How to repay

How you repay your loan depends on whether you’re employed or self-employed.

You can also make voluntary repayments.

Keep your payslips and P60 for your records - you’ll need them if you want to get a refund.
