How do I repay my student loan?

Updated on 30 December 2020


You can find information about student loans and how you repay them on our dedicated student tax website: Tax Guide for Students. Tax Guide for Students is a non-profit website that was set up by us (the Low Incomes Tax Reform Group) to provide tax information to students and their advisers.

We cover the following topics on the Tax Guide for Students website:

GOV.UK and the Student Loans Company websites also contains lots of useful information.
