    did you have to deposit a certain amount of money first or did you get the £1500 overdraft as soon as you opened your student account?

    You need a mininum of £500 to be deposited in your account per academic term to be eligible for the overdraft

    are there any bank accounts that let you have an overdraft of £550 immediately? my university wants a deposit of £550 to confirm my accommodation place and I simply can't afford it.

    HSBC gave me an O.D. of £750 immediately. Just have to wait 5 days on the card to arrive to activate it. No deposit needed.
