Student bank accounts

Student bank accounts are designed for those at college or university and are often aimed at those who may be managing their finances for the first time.

Many providers offer incentives for opening a student bank account - usually the most popular feature of a student account is an interest-free overdraft. 

Do I have to have a student bank account?

Just because you're a student doesn't mean that you have to stick to a student bank account.  Most students tend to go for these because of the extra benefits of the account.

However if you wish, you may opt to open a standard current account - this may pay more interest on balances that are in credit.

However some current accounts may not offer an interest-free overdraft and may require you to pay in a regular salary each month, so you'll need to check whether you qualify first.
