    I assume you are asking which student account to get? Be careful about saying Student Finance as that is the name of the company which gives out the loans.

    Anyway, i am with Natwest and they have been great. £1250 overdraft in first year, then £1400 in 2nd and 3rd years. They have also given me a student railcard for all 3 years which is very useful. Now, after my 3 year degree i'm going on to another 5 year degree and they have agreed to extend my student account throughout those 5 years with the same overdraft and everything.

    You get a £1250, interest free overdraft in your first year and a free young persons rail card for 5 years.
