The UK’s only student current account from a building society
At Nationwide, we're committed to helping you control your finances – especially when it comes to student life.
We'll start you off with an overdraft limit of £1,000.
In your second year, you can request an increase to £2,000.
In your third year, you can request an increase to £3,000.
If you use an arranged overdraft of £1,200 the amount we will charge you is 0p per day (variable).
The overdraft limit is optional, and you don’t need to request the full amount each year. So long as you stay in control of your finances, we’ll increase the overdraft amount you can ask for by £1,000 each year, to a maximum of £3,000. If your course is two years long, you’ll only be eligible to request a maximum of £2,000 by the end of the second year. To remain eligible for the overdraft, you'll need to pay in at least £1,500 per year of study* across two or more transactions. For example, this could be your student loan or money from family members. *Year of study refers to each 12 month period after your course start date.
