You need to pay back Tuition Fee Loans and Maintenance Loans, but not other student finance, for example grants and bursaries. You still have to repay your student loan if you leave your course early.

A different repayment plan applies to Postgraduate Loans.

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.

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