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

Information on English higher education loans outstanding by repayment plan can be found in Table 1a of the SFR.

At the end of the financial year 2016-17, around £89.3 billion was outstanding in English higher education loans, of which £45.0 billion was held by post-2012 undergraduate borrowers and a further £0.3 billion by master’s loan borrowers.
