Sharia students loans that do not conflict with the rules of Islam to be offered for the first time in drive to get more Muslims to university
by Eleanor Harding
Sharia student loans will be set up for the first time in Britain as part of a drive to boost the number of young Muslims applying to university.
The Government confirmed on Monday that a new 'halal' finance model will be introduced which does not conflict with the rules of Islam.
Muslims are forbidden from taking out loans on which they would be charged interest, and campaigners say this is putting some youngsters off going to university.
