Get yourself a UK Bank Account
A MUST have while you are a student here is a bank account. You will probably need it to pay your rent or to get paid if you get a part time job.
To open an account, you will need:
- Your Passport or ID Card
- Certifying Letter of student status and address
You can download a Bank Letter easily from MyCampus. To find out how, click here. Note, You must be academically registered before a bank letter will be available on MyCampus.
If your bank also requires a Certifying Letter, you can apply for one here.
