    Im sure this has probably been asked before but I would appreciate some help. Ive finished uni with over 18k debt ish, and I would like to know what per cent of my wage they take, say for example I earned 20,000 a year, how much would they take a week?

    Thank you.

    The amount you repay is 9% of your annual income over £15,000; it doesn't matter what the size of your loan is.

    At £20,000 income per year, you'll repay (20,000-15,000)*9%=£450 per year, i.e. £8.65 per week.
