Sorry this isn't about History....

I was reading a previous thread and saw someone mention the dreaded student loans company. I kind of mistakenly told them I was moving abroad and they told me I had to pay. I have not called or written to them with a payslip.

Has everyone teaching abroad notified them? If so how much are you paying roughly. I don't want a hefty bill when I return home but also don't want to pay now!! Problem!


I have read with interest all the IB info and advice and will now contribute as a new member.

Late response, but in case you're still interested...

I told them I was moving abroad and (if I remember rightly) completed a form on which I stated my current earnings. From that they calculated my repayments - I think I was paying about 150/month, but that would obviously depend on your salary, as well as possibly the amount of loan you have outstanding.

Annoyingly, when I completed a UK tax return (I own part of a house back in the UK so had to be taxed on the rental income) they stopped taking my money, arguing that now I was paying tax in the UK they would take my repayments out of that. As the rental income is nowhere near the personal allowance limit, they're not taking anything.
