    4Student Credit Card

    If you're 18 or over, you can apply for a Student Credit Card with a credit limit of up to £500. Handy for emergencies, it's available subject to status and account conduct.

    5Regular Saver

    The fixed preferential rate of 3% AER/gross over 12 months is available to Bank Student Account customers. With Regular Saver, you save money over a 12-month fixed period. Partial withdrawals are not permitted. If you close your account early, you'll receive interest at our Flexible Saver rate.

    Save between £25 and £250 per month by standing order for a fixed term of 12 months. If you do not save £250 in any given month you can carry over any unused subscription to following months.

    Interest is calculated on the daily cleared balance on your Regular Saver and we will pay this to your Regular Saver on the anniversary of the date your account was opened. You can only hold one Regular Saver Account at any given time.

    At the end of 12 months we'll transfer your account balance into your Instant Access Savings, Flexible Saver or Premier Savings. If you have more than one of these accounts we'll pay your savings into the account which pays the best interest. And if you don't have any of these accounts, we'll convert your Regular Saver to a Flexible Saver. Please note that the money will only be moved into accounts that have exactly the same sole or joint names as the Regular Saver account

    AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate. This shows you what the gross rate would be if interest were paid and compounded each year. Gross is the interest rate you’ll receive before applicable tax is deducted from your account.

    If you save £250 every month for 12 months and qualify for the 3% interest rate, you'll earn approximately £48.95 interest (gross)

    Bank Visa Debit Card

    Your Bank Contactless Visa Debit Card gives you instant access to your money whenever you need it. You can use your card to pay for goods and services wherever VISA is accepted. The Bank Visa Debit Card now comes with Contactless technology. Contactless allows you to make low value payments of up to £30 with a simple tap of your card, just look for the Contactless logo at a retailer.

    More on the Bank Debit Card.

    You can also use your card to withdraw local currency at cash machines worldwide and pay for goods and services worldwide wherever you see the VISA logo shown on your card2. Unless you agree that the currency conversion is done at the point of sale or withdrawal and agree the rate at that time, for example with the shopkeeper or on the self-service machine screen, the exchange rate that applies to any non-sterling debit card payments (including cash withdrawals) is the VISA Payment Scheme Exchange Rate applying on the day the conversion is made.

We will make the conversion and deduct the payment from your account once we receive details of the payment from VISA, at the latest the next working day. Details of the current Visa scheme exchange rates are available at
