My daughter (18) has just started a 2 year course at a College (it is also a uni, but her 2 year course isn't a degree).  The Student bank accounts seem to want UCAS codes.  Does this mean she isn't eligible for a student account.  Seems a bit discriminatory that she lives away from home and has all the expenses and banking needs of a Uni student, but can't seem to get a student account.

    What level / qualification is the course ?  Santander student accounts for instance are not limited to degree courses and offer a list of different proofs to enable the student account.
