    Unless your family is going to pay 9250 a year for fees and then your living on top then you'll need a loan...

    i'd say somewhere between 80-90% of (UK) students get a loan possibly slightly less

    im not going to live though, so its just 9250 a year.

    right, so it's quite popular.

    the thing is, paying back = interest , i dont want to pay w interest, thats ultimately the reason as to why im not getting one.

    It's more like a graduate tax really, have you had a conversation with your mum about travel and leisure costs?

    ahh right, well, for travel, i'll be driving, leisure costs shouldnt be a problem.. i think.

    I told my mum that I didnt wan't a loan bc of interest, she was okay with it, just means i need to be extra careful with spending. :/ ahahah

    but im worried that maybe in the future i might not afford it.

    can you pay using student loan in the 2nd or 3rd year of uni?

    Yes you can apply in 2nd year if you decide you need it. Unless you're on a quite high salary the payments are quite low on a monthly basis.

    Do you have a religious or economic objection to interest?

    You apply each year. There's also a box you tick so that whilst you may be entitled to the maximum, you can ask for much less if you wish.

    I applied for a student loan cause I knew I wouldn’t be able to afford uni without it. One of my mates didn’t apply for a student loan for religious reasons and his dad supports him.

    Everyone's entitled to the full tuition fee and then there's a non-income assessed maintenance loan. There's a higher maintenance loan which is based on where you're studying and your household income.
