    I got a letter from student finance saying "my plan 2 student loan is due to enter repayment".

    I am currently doing a PGDE (and am being funded by student finance)

    What is this and why have I got a letter? Student finance know I am doing a PGDE as they are funding me.

    What do I have to send and where am I sending it to?

    Thanks

    That is an automated letter. You don't need to do anything.

    Does it explain any further what details you have to give? If this was me, I would send them a copy of my student finance award letter and take it from there.

    On that letter, there should be a helpline number too. They should be able to advise you.

    It might be the same organisation, but I bet you there is one team dealing with repayments and one dealing with approving loan requests who don't talk to each other.

    It's just a standard letter which lets you know that the repayment terms have now commenced. However, that just means that you start making repayments from wages once you earn over the threshold.

    Once you've supplied the info that you're living on a further student loan, you won't hear any more about it. The letter sounds aggressive, but it's just trying to weed out those who should start repaying and have maybe "forgotten" to tell their Payroll Department. That's clearly not you, so don't panic.

    If the address isn't on the forms, then I suggest phoning them to ask (number available via the Contact option at the bottom of each page on their website). Seems daft of them to design a process with such a vital bit of info missing, but it wouldn't surprise me in the least!

    And there was no stamped envelope in that letter for you to send your evidence / letter to?
