    I have a few days to reply to my offer (Mayflower) but, I don't yet have my student bank account so it won't be coming from my own BUT my loan is due to come into my current bank account.

    Would anyone advise?
    I would obviously be able to change the payment details after accepting the offer?

    I'll give them a call, just wanted some opinions
    You should be able to change your current account to a student account, keeping the same sort code and account number - that's what I did with mine. I guess it's probably different to each bank so I'd say go into a branch and see what they have to offer in terms of student accounts, perks, overdrafts, etc. Hope this helps a bit

    How long did it take for your account to change? I upgraded mine yesterday and nothing has happened yet

    I did mine yesterday too and nothing's changed yet...I'm assuming it changes when the new card comes? At least that's what I'm hoping! which bank did you get the account with?

    I just upgraded my NatWest current account to the student account, so I don't think I'm gonna get a new card delivered since my details should remain the same.

    I forgot what was written when I completed the form, so now I don't even know what I should be waiting for

    My details are staying the same too -- changed from a current account to student account at Santander -- but they're giving me a new debit card. Give them a call and find out what you should be waiting for..it might be an email or letter or something?

    how many people have heard back from halls? mine still only says submitted and im worried that because i live so close they are leaving mine till last because its not technically a priority? even though im just outside the boundary so should get garunteed halls? also im studying zoology
    I'm studying Zoology too!! and yeah I've confirmed my place in Wessex Lane, did you put Southampton as your firm choice? It says online that they're still accepting accommodation applications on there website, but you can try their accommodation hotline, not sure if it will help but you can try it +44 (0)23 8059 5959

    Hi, I've been offered a place at Mayflower halls but now I've had some time to think about it I think I would prefer to live somewhere cheaper... Mayflower is quite expensive! Just wondering how you managed to get your offer changed; did you just call up and ask?
