Overseas Students: EU Nationals

- Monday, 24th January 2011


Rt Hon Peter Lilley MP

Mr. Peter Lilley:

To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills what proportion of students from other EU member states he estimates will not repay their loans in each of the next three years; and if he will make a statement.


Mr. David Willetts (Department for Business, Innovation and Skills):

We do not have any estimates of the number of students who will not repay their loans in each of the next three years. The Student Loans Company (SLC) Official Statistics Supplement to the June 2010 Statistical First Release "http://www.slc.co.uk/pdf/SLCOSP032010.pdf shows the current position for EU students, in tables 1(iii), 1(iv), 2(iv), 2(v) and 3(iv) to 3(vi). The SLC has well established mechanisms for recovering loans from all students who move abroad and we are confident that these will enable us to collect repayments from EU students in the future.
