    Hi there,

    So I'm a postgrad now but I opened my Santander international student current account back when I was an undergrad. As it requires a monthly fee of 5 quid I'm wondering whether I still get the best deal. If anyone can give me some advice on Santander student accounts or maybe even a better deal with another bank? I don't need overdraft options, or package accounts etc, just somewhere to basically keep my money without the additional fee. Thanks guys!

    Are you still a student? the only ther international accounts I can recall are Natwest, HSBC and Barclays.

    You will have to check they are free. I think so and am surprised Santander are charging you.
    Your other option is unizest, which has a lower monthly fee.
