Hi,

I'm applying for student finance but its asking for my bank details. Obviously I want to open a student bank account but can't do so until my birthday in late August but I have to apply for student finance before the end of May. So, can I just put my current bank account details in for now? Will there be any chance to change the details to my student account later down the line?

Edward.

Yes that’s fine.

You can update your bank details if need be (although if you get a student account with your current bank they’ll normally just change your current account into a student account so your sort/account number won’t change)

Hi Edward,

You do not need a bank account to make an application.

Apply online to ensure that your support is in place, we will still process applications without bank details.

You can update the bank account details or make changes online once you have one.

Thanks Rona
