The Student Loans Company (SLC) administers student loans for each of the UK Government Administrations. Statistics covering English loans to EU domiciled borrowers are published annually by SLC in the Statistical First Release (SFR) ‘Student Loans in England’.


Information on the loan balance held by EU domiciled borrowers that are liable for repayment and in arrears at the end of each of the financial years 2012-13, 2013-14 and 2014-15 can be found in table 1 of the SFR.

The information for the financial years prior to this could only be provided at disproportionate cost.
