So i'm soon to be a student (Hopefully) and I was wondering what's the best bank to open an account with, I don't really have any very specific requirements and I tend to normally be pretty tight with my money, only buying something if I absolutely need it.
What banks do you guys currently have an account with? What benefits do they give you and what do you wish you knew sooner about student banking?

Personally I'm gonna go with santander student account they do the following:
As long as £500 goes into your account each academic term, and you register for Online Banking, you'll get the following:
- A free 4-year Santander 16-25 Railcard which could save you 1/3 off rail travel in Great Britain
- An interest-free and fee-free Arranged Overdraft, up to £1,500 in years 1-3, then up to £2,000 if you stay on to year 5 (overdrafts are subject to status).
- 3% AER / 2.96% (variable) on balance from £300 up to a maximum of £2,000
- Access to 1|2|3 World offers, including preferential rates and special deals on other Santander products.

Santander seems to be the current best.
