Muslim students face finance dilemma over tuition fees
Bushrat Almari is from Bradford and is studying for a pharmacy degree at Bradford University.
Like many Asian students in further education she lives with her family and is fortunate that her father can manage to pay the annual £3,000 tuition fees.
But that will change next year when they go up to £9,000, meaning that her sister will be prevented from getting a degree.
As practising Muslims they cannot take out a student loan as it has to be paid back with interest, which Bushrat says is forbidden.
"I follow my faith, so for me taking out a loan, no matter how low the interest rate may be, is just not an option.
"And it's the same for all my Muslim friends who do not want their beliefs to conflict with going to university."
