    I've basically wanted to change my surname for a few years now and just got my deed poll signed after getting my place at uni. I just wanted to know if anyone has changed there name before going to uni and how you went about it? I'm in the process of notifying HMRC, SLC etc. but I still need to open a student account and I'm waiting for my new passport to arrive which will be in my new name but my ucas confirmation letter (which banks request) is in my old name. Considering I'm done with ucas now do I still need to notify them of my name change? Also, how did you go about notifying your uni?

    Thanks in advance.

    Just go to their admin/student support at your uni and ask them to change it for you. It would be easier to wait for your new passport to arrive before opening your bank account, as your deed poll has both your new and old surnames on they should be able to make the connection so it wont make it difficult getting an account .
