"Loan overpayment" after withdrawing required to be paid back ASAP? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I withdrew around two weeks ago from university.

    At the time of withdrawing, I was aware of the fact I would be repaying my bursary that I received. This obviously makes sense. All advice I saw online suggested my loan for the first term would be paid back in the usual way, when I am earning above £21,000. I phoned student finance about 10 days ago to see if this was the case, and a woman confirmed it was so.

    Yet, yesterday I received a letter saying that I must pay back my loan amount for the first term ASAP, and if I do not, then this will with impact upon my future studies. I've logged in to my student finance account online, and I don't see this letter. I only see a letter about repaying my bursary.

    Anyhow, I rung them and after a considerable amount on the phone and background whispering to the woman on the phone, they told me that it is correct I will be paying my loan back ASAP.

    What do you suggest I do about this?

    If you can't afford to pay back your loan ASAP, you need to sort out a repayment plan with them.
