    I'm starting uni in September and I'm just wondering whether it is possible to have a student account from Santander (ie the one my student loan is paid into) and a savings account at the same time (Barclays- I have this already)

    I want to keep them separate as I need money for placements in the holidays so don't want to mix it up with my money for everyday essentials. Thank you!

    Yes, that's fine. The only rule, which is generally followed by 99% of students, is that you should only have one student current account/student credit card.

    You can have as many credit cards as you want (be careful!)

    Yeah I just meant student credit cards - these credit cards are normally only available to those who hold a student current account.

    But yes, you can in theory have as many general ones as you like. I don't put much on mine but I can definitely see how easy it is to get into debt...you literally don't feel the money coming out :O...until payment date of course
