What do I need to open a student bank account?
If you don't bank with us already we will need three things from you to open a Student Account:
- proof of student status
- proof of your identity
- proof of your address
What happens when I graduate?
In the month of July in the year of your graduation, subject to our assessment of your financial position, we will change your Student Account to a Graduate Account. We will write to you at least 60 days before we do this at which time we will provide you with up to date copies of 'Personal Banking terms and conditions' (PDF) and 'A guide to personal accounts fees and interest' (PDF).
