Just had my second interview with my recuiter (BARB complete, pre selection complete) and have been given my 3rd interview for next. My recruiter asked me about any debt; I informed her of my student debt. It will total close to £25,000 (4 years tutition and living costs) and the ''creditor'' is Student Finance England - the Government. As I'm going soldier entry she was not sure if this type of debt was acceptable, although I stated that my understanding of the Army's policy on debt was that this was fine - I'm the first ''Graduate Soldier'' applicant she has dealt with. Student Loan payments will be taken from my wages, along with other tax and NI etc. so I see no problems ahead. I salso pointed out to her that a significant percentage of Officers will be paying off student loans. Equally, student loan payments are considered ''acceptable debt'' insofar as they are compared against a mortgage; unlike a personal loan or multiple cars on finance etc. Does anyone have any knowledge / experience with this sort of issue? I would imagine this is fairly common. Cheers for any help.
