Scenario 2: Bhavna, Therapeutic Radiographer, 35 graduated 6 years ago, Band 6
After six years, Bhavna would earn approximately £33,587 and pay back £58 a month* if she had taken out a full student loan. Based on current NHS pay scales and repayment thresholds.
Assuming Bhavna has accessed a full student (tuition fee and maintenance), loan. Her salary is OVER the current £25,725 threshold and Bhavna would be paying 9% of anything earned over the threshold (£7,862) so her monthly repayment until April 2020 when the threshold changes again (or until she moves up another pay grade) would be approximately £58.
