Statistics covering English student loans are published annually by the Student Loans Company (SLC) in the Statistical First Release (SFR) ‘Student Loans in England’.

Interest added to student loans is capitalised. This means that it is not possible to separate the amount associated with the loan principal from the interest accrued on the total loan book in the way requested.
