Overseas Students: Finance

Volume 487: debated on Tuesday 27 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Innovation, Universities and Skills what proportion of non-UK EU domiciled students who graduated from an English university in (a) 2004, (b) 2005, (c) 2006 and (d) 2007 have started repaying their student loan. (249096)

Non-UK EU students commencing courses in 2003/04, 2004/05 and 2005/06 are eligible for a tuition fee grant, but not eligible for a student loan. Those commencing courses in 2006/07, who are the first students to be eligible for a loan, would not be expected to graduate until summer 2009 at the earliest, so figures are therefore unavailable at present.
