Excellent Service

Natwest have gone above and beyond to help me out when Student Finance have been late on payments, they've made sure I don't incur any charges in areas that I absolutely would have and have been fully understanding and quick to act when I've needed help.

After waiting 2 MONTHS for them to open my atudents account i reveive a letter that my application was dennied. This after i received an email that my account had been open. The staff was extremely unhelpful and unintrested in helping. When i askes why i was refused they said that they don't give out that information ( i honestly could not think of a single reason). The whole two month experience was a complete nightmare. I would advise people to avoid nat west at any cost.

Good but they don't allow you to get other products

Natwest is fantastic when you're a student. Interest free over draft, credit card and I got a rail card with mine. Once you have left university and begin your career this let's their users down. You are unable to recieve any other products from them due to having a student account and have to request to switch over, which doesn't come with any advantages for staying with them. Other building societies provide a better service for their existing customers.

The staff at Natwest were very helpful, especially as this was my first account and I wasn't sure how the whole process works. They made me feel comfortable and allowed me to ask as many questions as I needed to make the best decision as to open with them or not, and of course - I did!

Honoured Student Railcard

Sanity-saver!

When I was a student at Southampton Uni, I suffered from such homesickness! The free rail card I got from changing my solo account into a student account meant I could afford rail fares home every 2 weeks. I wouldn't have survived uni without it!...

I've had a great time with my Natwest student account.
I enjoyed the perks of the 18-25 rail card, since it made traveling home much cheaper.
I also had few issues during my time with Natwest. One issue I did have was that they got my graduation date wrong and switched my account details without telling me. This included changing the terms of my overdraft and my interest rates. The Natwest team supported me really well with changing it and the issue was sorted in a decent time frame.
I would recommend this account for students, although the rail card is sadly no longer a perk.
