STUDENTS can open a specially tailored bank account during their time at University.

Many students will have now received those all-important results that are sending them off to Uni - so sorting out Student Finance is the next big step 

Currently, student account providers are battling it out for the top spot, with many offering tempting perks in time for the new term beginning 

Moneyfacts has revealed that the most generous overdraft tariffs this year are with Nationwide Building Society, HSBC and Barclays, as the banks are offering up to £3,000 interest-free 

This year two banks are offering a free cash incentive upon opening too, plus a variety of other offers are being flogged too.

The financial comparison experts said that it's important to study all the packages before you commit.

Usually you're provided with a larger overdraft limit than a normal bank account - with some going up to £3,000 without interest 

After you graduate you still have to repay everything you have borrowed and interest may kick in on graduating.
