I'm going with santander as they offer the best for me.

Hi,
You don’t need a bank account to apply for finance. If you prefer, you could wait until August/September when you can apply for a student bank account and then you can update/add bank details in your online account or by calling SFE.

Hello

You don't need a student bank account to apply for student finance however opening one can certainly be helpful if you need an overdraft.

If you open one after applying for student finance you can always update your account to have the funds pay into your Santander account.

I found having one useful as I wasn't able to get a job and so the overdraft was a big help! Be smart with it, the overdraft isn't just here to dip into for fund things but for when you need it!

I hope this helps.
