Hey everyone, I'm a first year university student who really wants to start putting money away into a savings account for my future as opposed to spending it on unnecessary clothing purchases and dinners with friends!
I'm currently with Natwest, my main account which I've had since before I was 16, and with HSBC which is my student account (but I'm not a fan of HSBC!)
What banks would you recommend that provide the best savings accounts?
You can create ISA account its tax free saving account as far as I know it lets you save money and invest in funds and shares. I recommed Al rayan bank as they claim to invest your money ethically with out interestso good for people who observe the Islamic faith. Hope this helps. Its great that you thinking about personal finance I highly recommend you watch this YouTube video by Patricia Bright

What do you actually want from your savings account? You can get ones where you have to pay in a set amount each month, ones where your money is locked away for a certain amount of years, etc.
Just dump all your money into stocks and shares, the market needs your liquidity
I am running my account with Nationwide since last 8 years and it seems to me the best. Although each person has his/her own choice. You can also ask your known.
