Differing repayment of your student loan
You can apply to Honours Student Loans to postpone your student loan repayments if all these three conditions apply:
- you took out the loan for a course that began before September 1998.
- your gross earnings are £2,227 or less a month which is the same as a yearly gross income of £26, 727.
- you have documentary proof to show that your income is below this amount.
If you are planning to go overseas for an extended period of time, you may also be able to delay your repayments. But the level of income in your new country must still be below the UK income threshold. You will continue to be charged interest throughout any period of deferment.
