Having just completed a three year course in Economic and Social History at the University of Birmingham, I have just embarked on a gap year. Hopefully, I will be able to earn enough money this year to begin paying for the Masters in Medieval History that I intend to start at the same university in the next academic year. Finances have never weighed too heavily on my mind, as the student loans and grants covered everything from year to year, however the Masters degree program doesn't offer any such financial help. My question then, is whether or not it is possible to prolong the amount of time you have your student bank account? I have a Halifax account with a £1,500 overdraft, which they say may be increased to £3,000. Seeing as I am now technically no longer a student, the bank has said I have a year to pay off my overdraft. If I now wave my new acceptance letter under their collective nose will they allow me to keep said "student" bank account and if so, will they allow me to increase the amount I have in the red? Any help here would be incredibly useful. Thank you in advance.

Try asking the bank, instead of us?

You can apply for graduate account in most banks.

If it is the same as the Nat west you will get a graduate acct that allows you 3 years further interest free overdraft on a reducing scale to zero after the 3 years.
