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’.

Data provided by SLC shows that there were a total of 21,600 EU domiciled borrowers who had not yet made a repayment, of those who are liable to repay, with at least one tax year processed at the end of the financial year 2014-15. The balance remaining on these loans was £154 million.
