CIPP survey on freezing the student loan repayment threshold

24 August 2015

The Government is asking for views on freezing the student loan repayment threshold for either all post-2012 borrowers or for only new borrowers. The CIPP survey has only three questions so should only take a moment or two of your time.

The government’s consultation details 2 options:

  1. keeping the loan repayment threshold at £21,000 for all students from April 2016, or;
  2. freezing it at the level it will have reached in 2020 only for new borrowers starting in academic year 2016-7 and repaying from April 2020.

The consultation states that the preferred option is to freeze the threshold for all plan-2 (post-2012) loans thereby changing the intention to raise thresholds annually in line with earnings.

Please take 2 minutes to answer our short survey to help inform the CIPP’s response to this consultation.

The survey will close on 3 September 2015. Thank you in advance for your time and input.
