    I am talking about the aspire account. I can only find their information on their own website (videos,etc), or sites where they themselves posted their info, but no reviews, info, etc from external sources.

    The problem is that I can't tell. I wish I knew or heard about at least one person who has this account.

    I am probably just going to open a normal student bank account from the UK. It's much more reassuring...

    You mean go there first, and then do everything?

    Can't you do both? Or is that just a waste?

    It's best to go directly to the branch of the bank, and start from there.

    Agreed... there's no independent review of this mysterious outfit. I'd like to know how they accessed the UCAS database. I've asked UCAS to explain... still waiting for a reply.

    I guess in itself that might be some sort of reassurance? Not that they didn't reply but that they are on UCAS.

    The issue is how they got hold of the UCAS database. They may be legit. They may have bought it. Perhaps another p2p service, like Transferwise. Let's see what UCAS have to say.
