Just got the all clear for a loan and grant for my open university course and I understand that you dont start repaying anything if you earn under the threshold but there's something that wasn't quite clear to me about repayments on one of the letters I received..
"you'll be liable for your Tuition Fee Loan two weeks after the first day of term 1, and at the start of term 2 and 3, not the date when the instalment is paid to your university or college. % of total Tuition Loan you'll be liable for: term 1 - 25%, term 2 - 50%, term 3 - 100%."
Then the section just after says: "You'll normally begin repaying your loan at the start of the tax year 4 years after the start of your course."
But did you bother to watch?
