    Depends on how much you earn! ie with London weighting, a 26k salary will be £60 per month (according to my mortgage advisor).

    I think its around £100 for me. Sometimes a bit less or more depending on shift enhancements.

    I've already started paying mine back from a previous degree even though I'm still currently a student and don't earn enough.
    They work it out month by month and then see if you need to pay anything back....
    Some months I've paid £5...others I've paid around £40.
    Depends on your monthly pay.
    They take a percentage (can't remember what.. I have it written down somewhere).
    It also depends on if you have a loan from prior to 2008 (is it?) When the loan system changed.
    Basically...ring student loans and ask them for clarification.
    They've been really helpful when I've asked.
