Wonderful Student Account, Easy-To-Use App, Good Student Overdraft

I already had a Natwest bank account before university, so it made sense to stick with them when upgrading to a student account. I'm now a postgraduate student with the same account, with a £2000 overdraft. Their app is the easiest to use (in ...

I already had a Natwest bank account before university, so it made sense to stick with them when upgrading to a student account. I'm now a postgraduate student with the same account, with a £2000 overdraft. Their app is the easiest to use (in comparison with Santander and Co-Operative Bank Apps that my flatmates have), and it was very quick to set up a savings account with them too. They also have a rewards system when shopping with certain clients, giving you a little cashback, which is nice! When I graduate, I will be staying with Natwest for a graduate account.

Good. But they can cancel your account with no warning

NatWest was a really good bank for me. The staff in their banks are really friendly and helpful. But. They have the rights (in the contact you sign) where they can cancel your account and not tell you any reason why. I was a student in my second year...

NatWest was a really good bank for me. The staff in their banks are really friendly and helpful. But. They have the rights (in the contact you sign) where they can cancel your account and not tell you any reason why. I was a student in my second year and out of the blue they cancelled my student and saving account with no explanation which caused me huge problems. For this reason I would not recommend NatWest.

Probably the best student account

They are very fair in terms of extra charges, limiting them as they know you might not have the most stable of income. Its also nice the overdraft is limited to 500 at first so you don't blow it all in one go

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...

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!

Changed from undergraduate to postgraduate (i.e. still a student), so had to extend my student account with interest free overdraft. They honoured the student railcard offer which was running four years ago when I opened the account, despite it not being offered anymore.
