Post Graduate Student bank account

This morning I made my third trip into HSBC. to change my account to a student account. Only to discover what no one had mentioned before, that it was not available to me as it is more than 3 years since I graduated.
I have done some research since but all the accounts I looked at require a minimum two year course.
Are there any bank accounts for full time Masters students (one year course) who graduated over 3 years ago?
Thanks.

Hey, so I am currently doing a postgrad course straight after my BSc. I'm with Barclays. Apparently, my bank account changed from a "Students Account" to a "Higher Education Account" without me even knowing. I'm not sure if this helps in terms of information.

Thank you, I will try Barclays.

I originally tried NatWest but as I am returning to study (been 4 years since my Undergraduate), apparently I don't qualify.
