    TSB are advertising a student bank account with 5% interest and I am just wondering if anyone has this account and what their experiences are with it.

    A week ago I submitted the online application form and told to bring either a UCAS letter or a letter from university confirming your place and ID. I took my ID in and my acceptance letter from my university, and a few days later I got a call from them saying I'd have to bring in a UCAS letter. However, I didn't apply through UCAS so I did not have a letter. They were adamant that even though I didn't apply through UCAS, I'd still have a UCAS ID.

    As far as I'm aware, you don't have a UCAS ID if you applied directly to the university?

    If 5% interest is required, do you really need a student account? Sounds like you are going to have tonnes of cash sloshing around rather than the average student who runs up a massive overdraft.

    I'm under 18 anyway so I wouldn't have access to an overdraft. Regardless of how much cash I have, if I am a student I might as well take advantage to 5% interest?
