Hi, I'm 18 years old and up to this point I've never had a bank account - any of my money up until now has been put away in my mum's account.
Now I need to start thinking of applying for a student loan, and need a bank account.
Obviously once I start university I can get a student account but until then i'm not eligible for a student account.
When I do, I'd like to open a student account with Santander. So I thought it made sense to open a child account, which is for 11 to 18 year olds, which can then be transferred to a student account when I start uni.
Only problem is, on attempting to apply online, it says I have to be aged 11 to 17 to apply, so I don't really know what to do. Any advice would be much appreciated.
