Government student finance changes

As a result of the recent Conservative Party conference student finance has been reviewed.

The key points from the review are:

  • The repayment threshold will be increased to £25,000 from April 2018.
  • After that increase it will then be uprated annually "in line with the annual average earnings growth".
  • The threshold increase will apply to those who started university in or after 2012 – not just those who first started repaying their loan from April 2018.

More information regarding this can be found in this online article:
