    I left uni a few weeks ago and was wondering what any fellow drop-outs had done with their student loans?
    I want to send what I've received of mine back and start again next year but I don't have a debit card or a cheque book (I HATE NATIONWIDE!) and these were the 2 options for paying back that the student loans company gave me :rolleyes:
    They told me I could get a family members account and pay using their money then give them the money but no family members are too happy about this idea.

    So what have you done?

    Go and speak to Nation Wide. You should have a cheque book and debit card.

    I have spoken to Nationwide on so many occassions I have lost count. They told me that they only give debit cards and cheque books to people who have more than £750 going into their accounts every month.

    1. This is just ridiculous
    2. My friend has a Nationwide account and a debit card and cheque book! And she definatly doesn't have £750 going into her account every month!

    Can't you ask Nationwide to do the cheque for you?

    I would phone them up, ask again, and if they say no then ask them how to transfer to another bank, that should put a kick up their arse to give you a card/chequebook, if not, then you end up with a better bank.

    If you have a basic account with Nationwide you can make a 'cheque withdrawl' at the counter which is exactly the same as a cheque.
