How do I open a bank account as an international student?

Managing your money is an essential part of student life and as an international student you will need to open a UK bank account.

You must go to the bank in person to open your account. You must take:

  • your passport and ID card (if you have one)
  • letter from the University (which you can print from My Student Record which confirms your address, course, date of birth and nationality) - this needs to be stamped by your Faculty office or International Experience team member at Student Support Services, Level 5 Owen Building. Please ensure your Home address and Term-time address are correct.
