I had a discussion with a roommate who is a UK resident and he mentioned overdrafts that banks provide to UK-native students. The sums vary but I got curious and found that you must have lived 3 years in UK to qualify for it.
As a EU student, would I qualify for such a freebie if I have proof of address for 3 years, i.e. I finish year 3 at university and start 4th in September which is 3-year mark. Or is 3-year meant as "you lived in UK for 3 years but if you were student this whole time, then it does not count" and one can't apply for an overdraft?
I am curious about that and bank conditions seem vague.

It's entirely up to the bank, you'd have to apply and see what they say. I expect some might be dubious that having no permanent address here you might go back abroad after your degree and try to avoid repaying the money however.
