Teachers: claim back your student loan repayments
Find out more about this service, which rewards science, languages and computing trainee teachers who go on to teach in specific areas of England.
If you start teacher training and go on to teach physics, chemistry, biology, languages or computing in one of the specific areas, you'll be able to claim back the student loan repayments you make through PAYE (Pay As You Earn) once you’re a qualified teacher.
You will be able to claim if you spend at least 50% of your contracted hours teaching one or more of the eligible subjects in a state-funded secondary school.
If you start teacher training in the 2020 to 2021 academic year, you’ll be able to claim for the first time in Autumn 2022. If you remain eligible, you’ll be able to claim each year for 11 years.
For full eligibility criteria, payment information and how to claim visit the eligibility and payment guidance on GOV.UK.
