The Student Loans Company (SLC) administers student loans for each of the UK Government Administrations. Statistics covering English loans to EU domiciled borrowers are published annually by SLC in the Statistical First Release (SFR) ‘Student Loans in England’.
Information on the repayment statuses of EU domiciled borrowers, who are liable for repayment, can be found in table 3B of the SFR.
The SLC has established repayment arrangements for borrowers who move overseas and will pursue those who do not repay what is due.
