What is the best student account? Watch

Moneysavingexpert.com do a comparison of all the available student accounts each year, but this year's hasn't been added yet as details for most of them aren't available.
They have a guide from last year on there though if you want to have a look - I imagine the accounts will be quite similar this year, maybe some different freebies or something.
Do you actually mean a student account? As in you're a uni student. Because a student bank acount is only for those in uni. It's just I imagine if you are only planning on having £100 in it you don't mean a student account.
There are lots of websites where you can check the best ones available:
Hope that helps everyone.
I received a letter today (roughly a week later from opening my account) confirming my £750 interest-free overdraft available to me now. Should receive my VISA card shortly. There is an option for a Student Credit Card as well with HSBC but I didn't take that.
Santander give new customers £50 for opening a student account if you do it before the 31st of August, so I went with them.
