    okay,so I'm a mature student with no dependants and looking for a summer job now. I have looked at undergrad accounts but the jargon confuses me. Which bank account is best for the overdraft but also can be used for my year abroad? I dont particularly want a credit card though. Any ideas,people?

    There's barely any difference between student accounts, look into the fees of using your card abroad between banks but otherwise i think santander and co-op have the highest overdrafts in 1st year.
