    I've looked at the main ones and also the TSR student bank account page but I'm really not sure which one I should go for. I'm thinking either the Santander or HSBC. What bank did you chose and looking back which would you recommend?

    I just stayed with the bank I was with at the time. Won't apply so much to those living in large cities; but do take into account whether there's a branch nearby.

    Why? If theres an account that provides nice bonuses there are many ways around it... most things can be done over the phone or online anyway

    My student account is a Santander one, although I was already with them. The railcard has been very useful as I travel a lot and I'm glad I stuck with them.
