Applying for a student loan
You don't need to have a confirmed place at a university or college to apply for your student loan. Applications can be made online at www.gov.uk
Repayment of student loans
You don't need to start repaying your student loan until you're earning £25,000 or over. If your income drops below this amount then your repayments will pause. For further information, please see the Government's website.
