    I have gone into abeyance for this academic year and will restart my year in September 2016. I was notified by student finance that they reduced the amount they pay to my uni to £4500. As I have gone into abeyance but will definitely be returning in September 2016 will I have to pay back that £4500 straight away or will it be after I have finished my full degree and after I earn more than £21000 per year?

    Normally, following a withdrawal, the tuition fee will become repayable when your earnings are above the government defined threshold (i.e: £21,000).

    Do bear in mind, if you have a grant or loan overpayment, then SFE may look at recovering this directly from you. From what I've heard, they are particularly determined to recover grants, but you should be able to setup a repayment plan if this affects you.

    Phone them up. If not, logically, I imagine it would be pretty easy to simply pay back half of the debt as soon as you graduate. The charge of course, would be a few years interest.

    Yes, you can dependent on your application type specify how much you want on the loan request form, or make an arrangement with the University, and request them to send an electronic task (Change of Circumstance) to update the tuition fee amount that SFE need to pay them.
