Thanks for all your comments, I'll give it some thought. I appreciate that sending payments back to the UK could be a pain, but I'm going to have to do so anyway to make my student loan payments.

Look at Xe.com for making transfers. Other forex companies are available.

You can get fixed exchange rates with the forex companies. In France, many people I knew lived in France but worked or got paid in the uk and their best bet was to fix the exchange rate for the next 6 months or year so they knew what they would be living on. I like worldfirst and I think you can set up regular transfers. They don't cost much and the exchange rate is good, much better and faster than the banks.

I don't think they would know if it was paid, these days you can get your personal loan in a matter of minutes through online banking. I looked at it myself but the terms of the agreement is that you will be in the UK.

I am not sure of what the consequences would be if they found out.
