    ;) HSBC have been really good with there intrest free overdraft of 1000 in the 1st yr and 1250 in 2nd.
  • When you come to the end of your degree it's also worth considering which bank account lets you pay off the overdraft for the longest period of time (interest free).  

    For example the co-op student account only lasts for 1yr although they will give you a £2000 overdraft wereas HSBC drops down in £500 increments each year from £1500. Although you can transfer bank accounts at any point need to think of how you mantain your account - if you want to swap.

    Also - look out for the charges related to going over your overdraft either unauthorised or authorised as some accounts can have a nasty sting in their tail![img][/img]
  • I found Lloyds TSB offered me a good student account of a £1500 interest free overdraft for my time studying my degree.
