Repaying your student finance

Our repayment guide on GOV.UK is the best place to find out about repaying your student finance. It covers important topics like:

  • when you start and finish repaying
  • how much you repay
  • how to repay
  • making voluntary repayments
  • getting a refund
  • updating your employment details

Keep your account up to date even after you finish your studies

We need to be able to contact you to tell you if:

  • there’s something wrong with your account or repayments
  • you’re close to repaying your loan - you could end up paying more than you need to

It's part of your student finance agreement to keep us up to date with current contact information until your loan is fully repaid or cancelled. You need to update your details if you leave the UK for more than 3 months.

Student finance partial cancellation scheme

If you’ve taken a full-time undergraduate Maintenance Loan and you start repaying your student loan, the Welsh Government could cancel up to £1,500 from any full-time Maintenance Loan balance. For more information, visit
