Student funding and Sharia law

We are aware that students of certain faiths may not wish to take out Student Finance (SFE) loans to fund their study and living costs because of the interest added to the repayment of such loans. The UK government are planning to introduce a suitable alternative, but currently there is no confirmed launch date for this.

In the meantime, affected students who follow the SFE income assessment process but apply for a £0.00 loan could still be eligible for our Access to Exeter bursary; please see the Bursaries and Scholarship pages for further details.
