Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    I will be studying for a MA in Leeds. I have been doing research on UK banks but sadly I couldn't decide to anything. Which bank should I use ? Ohh and I am an international student. My parents will transfer money to me regularly thus international banking fees are important.

    You need to consider whether there's a branch nearby. Although, being a major city, I would expect to find most or all major banks nearby.

    If this was me, I'd make an appointment and explain your situation. I've just had a quick look on Google and can't find what you're looking for.

    Good page here about student bank accounts. Basically go for the maximum overdraft and / or maximum freebies


    Good luck!
