Student loans

I really want to apply to university, but as a muslim I'm not really sure how to get funding/loans as they have interest when you pay back. Are there any alternatives?

u could apply for a degree apprenticeship you get a degree and still go to uni but your employer pays for it the only issue with this is that you will work alongside uni and u will only go to uni once a week and you get paid for your work hope this is helpful

According to the government, they're introducing "Alternative Student Finance" which will be available "after 2025" without interest - if you're willing to wait until then, you could consider this, otherwise, go for a degree apprenticeship: https://educationhub.blog.gov.uk/2023/07/21/alternative-student-finance-how-were-making-student-finance-accessible-to-everyone/
