    Hey there!

    First just to check - is this Student room only visited by St Mary's students or randomly by everyone?

    And then my question- for an application for accommodation and finance I Need a British bank account, don't I (German bank account not helpful if I understood it?!) So can anyone already using a British bank account for their tuition fees recommend a bank that is especially suitable for students (lowest bank charges etc..)?

    Thanks very much!

    I don't know if there would be any additional rules for international applicants (I don't see why there would be) but essentially all UK banks have some sort of student account, and if not then they a basic account. I have personally used Natwest for most of my life and have had no issues with them at all - indeed I have found them very helpful with interest free overdrafts and the like so that would be my suggestion.

    No this is not only for St Mary's students - there are (apparently) almost 2 million members here. There is a sub-forum on the site only for St Mary's students and applicants however. I would move this thread there for you but don't have the power to from this part of the forum so click here to find it.
