As an international student there are many good reasons for getting a UK bank account. It can give you easy access to money whenever you need it and make it easier for paying your fees.

There are many banks in Worcester and St Johnís where you can open a FREE current account; if you are willing to pay a small premium each month you can opt for an International Student Account which may offer useful benefits. Be sure that you ask what benefits you are getting for your money.†
