i had no problems with the bank account, just went in with housing contract and made a lodgement of a few quid and bang opened. HSBC if that helps.[/quote:015f79a6e6]
Thanks, a few friends who went to college in England have recommended HSBC too.
There’s a HSBC or a Barclays on Campus, there are other banks in Brighton but it’s a lot handier with an on campus bank (AIB in DCU spoiled me!).
