    Hi all
    To cut to the story quick main points are:
    Me & father have a join savers account with Barclays.
    I want to open account on my own for student finance, but I cant open a student additions account due to not being in university currently. I also cant open a normal current account as I am still in full time education.
    What can I do?
    Help please

    Wait until you have firmed your university place, at which point you can open a student bank account in your own name.

    Leave the bank details section of your Student Finance application blank for the moment. You can enter your new account details once you have it.

    Being in full time education does not prevent you from opening a bank account. Some banks will limit your facilities if you don't yet have a regular income, but your educational status shouldn't bar you from opening an account.
