    Bismillah

    I am a gap year student living in the UK. I am very confused what to do with my life right now. I want to go to university but refuse to take out a student loan because of the interest, Im sure theres many who have gone through the same thing. But what do i do now? Theres a part of me that really wants to start learning the deen, but i want a career as well. What are my options? Just any advice would be very helpful really.

    You can take on a degree apprenticeship (meaning you get paid whilst working and your degree is fully funded) if you want to enter HE but refuse to take out a loan/self-fund.

    Does your future career require you to have a degree?

    Regarding student finance, I'd suggest looking at this thread:
    http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=4593668

    It clarifies a few things about interest which may affect your decision.

    Feel free to check out the Student Financial Support forum fpe further questions on this.

    I hope in this forum you get the advice you're after .

    It was my understanding that there are good reasons for why a Student Loan is permissible (read this). There are currently no shariah student loan alternatives in place (although this might change in a few years), so you have only once choice: to take out the loan, or not to go to university. Alternatively, you could study abroad: France, Germany, Scandinavia, Belgium and a few other places in Europe all have no or very cheap tuition fees.
