My daughter did well enough to get a University place for this September. We were all very pleased. However, she was crying. I asked her how her application for a student loan was going. She stated that she cannot get a student loan as it involves giving interest (6.1%). She then said the options were for her to work and save money to pay for the course or that the bank of mummy and daddy will pay the fees. I asked her where she obtained this idea that Muslims cannot get student loans. She refused to answer. My impression is she got it from the Internet. It looks like I will pay the fees and my daughter will return the money to me when she starts work. My concern is I will probably not want the loan paid back! Am I a mug?
