Bank Accounts We have an arrangement with local Natwest bank branch for our students to be able to open bank accounts if studying in the UK for 6 months (26 week) or more. All you have to do is come into reception and we will take care of the administration and explain the requirements.
If you have a credit card or bankcard from your country that has a ‘Cirrus’ or ‘Maestro’ symbol, you will be able to withdraw money from cash points in London from your home account. You should check with your bank or credit card company to find out if you will be charged for this service. Most banks will add a surcharge to your transaction if you use the cash point in a foreign country.
