    I know the student loands are a good deal but at a rough guestimate, what's the interest rate on them?

    I saw on another thread that someone would pay back £83k which i find hard to believe, but they didn't say for how many years at uni that was for, but still . . .

    I think it's 1.5% at the moment, but I'm not sure.

    2.5-3% on average over the last decade, its ranged from 0-4.8%. But its impossible to know what the future will be, theres nothing stopping them going up to 5%+

    Also with the new fee system the interest rate will change (be higher than that minimum) depending on your earnings.
