With the A-level exam season drawing to a close, for those who have applied, it is time to start thinking about going to university It is well worth setting up a bank account early, as you will need to have a valid bank account to apply for student finance, with the student finance process normally taking several weeks. I highly recommend you apply for student finance as soon as possible, and not last minute, as I knew several people who did not have any money during freshers, as they left setting up an account and applying for student finance until about a week before the term started
- You’re 18 or over and live in the UK permanently
- You’re studying or are about to begin an undergraduate course that is at least 2 years in length, or level 4 to 7 apprenticeship. If you’re about to begin your course, you must have an ‘unconditional’ or ‘confirmed conditional’ offer (i.e. you have your exam results) before you apply
- You pay in at least £500 per academic term
- You don’t already have an existing Santander current account. If you do, you’ll need to transfer it
