    Basically what the title says.
    When do we need to open a student bank account?
    I take it that this is the account that all the accomodation fees and maintenance loan/grant will be paid into?
    Therefore will we then need to update our student finance application details?

    Thanks for any info in advance.

    asap i believe, although it doesn't really matter. i went to open mine a few weeks ago, to be told that i can't have one. i don't turn 18 until about 2 weeks until my course starts, and you cant open them until you're 18. however, most banks just upgrade your current account to a student account whenever you want.

    You don't *need* a student account at all. Any normal current account will work fine. It just needs to be in your name.

Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
