    Hey Guys,

    Is there a way a university can find out how many bank accounts you have in your name?

    Thankyou

    No. Though you cannot open more than one student/graduate account because the banks do research into which other accounts you hold with other banks.

    Why would a university care how many bank accounts you have? :confused:

    They wouldn't need it - if they wanted to know how many bank accounts you have all they would need to do is run a basic credit check.

    I could go into the high street armed with £20 and open 20 different accounts if I was that way inclined...

    its the student account you can only have 1 of.....

    depends on the terms and conditions of your account - some stipulate that you're not allowed to take out a student account with another bank while you hold one with them, some are fine about it/don't care. MoneySavingExpert is good on this: http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/ban...t-bank-account (visit again in August for an update when the new offers come out)

    The uni doesn't really care to be honest as long as they are getting paid their tuition fees and you aren't defrauding them.
