    It would probably not be possible to do a direct debit, because to do so you need to be an accredited organisation. What you would be able to do is a standing order FROM your normal account to pay your student account on a weekly basis. (You can set one of these up in the branch I think, or if not just write a letter with the details - amount, account number/sort code, date, frequency and sign it).

    You can get an overdraft with a debit card account, but I don't know about the Islamic accounts specifically - I thought that they were against debt? A normal account would have it, though.

    Having done a bit of Google apparently the objection of religious groups is charging interest. IF it's a student account, it will probably have an interest-free overdraft anyway.

    I think the Islamic account doesn't pay interest on money in the account?

    just one thing that sometimes to get the benefits of an account you have to use it as your main account so your loans have to be paid into it

    I *think* the metric the banks use is how much goes in and out the account, not who the credits come from.

    So, if the OP paid her loan into another account and transferred the money across, she should be alright. Either way, it's what I've been doing for 2 years now!
