*Please note this is not student generated content*
Banks may not allow you to open a current (student) account until your credit record can be checked. However, you should be allowed to open a savings account where you can deposit money.
You will need some key documents to open your first student bank account:
- A bank letter from the University
- Your passport
- Your Unconditional Letter of Acceptance (CAS Letter)
- Proof of your Aberdeen address (such as accommodation contract)
- Your visa (if applicable)
Once you have completed registration and have a home and term address showing in your Student Hub, a bank letter will automatically be emailed to your University account.
If your preferred bank is not included in the electronic letter or if the bank has requested a letter addressed to them, you can access a hard copy of your bank letter by visiting Infohub.
