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.
