I have an appointment this Tuesday with Halifax to open up a Student Current Account with them.
I was wondering whether I need to take a parent with me.
This will be my first Account with a bank, as I have never had one previously in any form or shape.
No, you should be able to open a student account on your own. You may, though, need a letter confirming your university place; if you're not yet at university, do you have an unconditional offer of a place?
