    I don't want to ask this question to the student finance enlgand as I obviously don't want to get into trouble.

    I want to move abroad to work or study as I don't have a future here I feel. Can the student loan company stop me from leaving the country If I owe them a previous loan but am not earning over £15.000 ? Could they say I can't leave the UK until I pay up??? Do I legally have to inform them if I leave? Stupid question, if I give them my passport details could they use that to track me down if I still go aborad? I don't know how this works so please clarify, but no jokes you guys I'm serious! Can it make a difference whether they know your new passport number or not?[/RIGHT]
    Thank you for the help

    I believe you are supposed to let the SLC company know when you go abroad for work.

    They can't stop you leaving the country. However if you don't make repayments they can pass the debt to external debt collection agencies to trace you, and charge you for the costs of tracing you and collecting the debt internationally.

    I am not an expert on Student Finance, but I think the sensible thing is the call them up and ask.
