Funding for Muslim students
Muslim students will need to carefully consider the options available for funding their studies as under Islamic Sharia law, the paying and receiving of interest is prohibited. The term given to this is 'Riba'.
However, there are banks that offer financial services that are considered to be Sharia-compliant.
Al Rayan Bank (formerly Islamic Bank of Britain)
Lloyds TSB offer an Islamic Account - this account is no longer available to new customers.
