Having the right documents to hand will help speed up your application.
When you apply for a current account with us, we’ll need proof of identity and proof of your address. As an international student, we accept letters from your university that confirm your term time address.
Your university letter must be from a recognised university, and you must be living at the address on the letter. We’ll need to be able to match your student housing address to the address in your application. If you’re living in a flat, or room number is needed, you’ll need to follow this format:
Line 1: Flat or Room 1
Line 2: 12 Smithe Street
Line 3: Optional
Post Town: Glasgow
Postcode: G1 1AA
We can also accept a tenancy agreement, as long as it is from a solicitor, housing association, local council or letting agency. We can’t accept a private agreement between you and the landlord.
Your tenancy must have already started, and last for a minimum of six months. So for example if today is the 24th August, we wouldn’t be able to accept a tenancy agreement that starts any date after the 24th August.
