    Hello guys !
    I already started thinking about tuition fees, and I know that there is a way to defer the payment through the student loan which has to be paid-back after graduation and once I got a job. Could you please tell me if you would recommend me this solution and if ya used it by yourself as well ? Thanks a lot to all, really appreciate your help !

    You don't start paying it back until you earn over a certain amount, that is automatic.https://www.gov.uk/repaying-your-student-loan/overview

    It has been 3 years since I graduated and I haven't started paying it off because I don't earn enough.
    Does that help?

    Thanks a lot Emma ! I am a bit perplex of the interest-rate.

    I used a repayment calculator to realize how much I would receive vs the overall amount I should pay-back+interest and It came out:
    Total amount borrowed : 27000 pound (9000pound * 3 years of my bachelor)
    Repaid amount: 39000 pound in 18 years with a salary of 21000 pound per year.

    Yeah, I know I would pay a very little money each month BUT 12000pound interest is ridiculous !

    Any chance you can tell me if this is normal ? Do you have to pay so much interest Emma ?
