I am trying to open a UK student current account for university, however I am finding it difficult because I have lived out of the UK for 2 years, prior to this I had only lived in the UK and had to move due to my parent's jobs. As a result, I have not lived in the UK for 3 years before opening the account and it is making it difficult to see what I am eligible for.
Has anyone else encountered this issue or have any advice on what to do?

They list the proof of id and address you need.

You say you havent been in the UK for 2 years and then 3 years?

What address do you have and who are you living with?

Are you classed as a home or international student?

Do you have your confirmation letter from sfe?

Have you shown them your passport? Is it a UK one?

You can get a letter from your uni as well.

Have you talked to the bank about it? Find out what the difficulty is and post back. What is it do they want , which you cant provide?
Which bank?
