I earn circa £50k and have an outstanding balance of £10k. Is it worth paying off? Or using a credit card to pay it off on 0%? Thoughts?

    Is your job secure, is your salary likely to increase significantly, how long before your student loan would expire.
     Only you have the answers to the questions posed, do the maths and work it out.

    Ive checked online, in the current situation with a pay increase of 1% yearly, it would be paid off in 7-8 years...

    And the answers to the other questions?
    Simply put, if you are due pay it off before it gets wiped then pay it off now if you can and don't forget the ongoing interest in your calculation.

    It won't expire until age 65 (I took it out 2014)
