Пояснения по откриване на банкова сметка онлайн във Велкобритания 2016/2017 Във връзка със запитвания, получени от бъдещи студенти приети в английски университети за 2016/17 учебна година

През последния месец, бъдещите ни студенти във Великобритания от есента на 2016 получиха имейли от UCAS със следното съдържание:


Dear XXX

We emailed you recently to tell you about how we can make it easier and quicker for you to open a student bank account.

We’re now also giving you two numbers, which allow you to access student accounts from even more banks –  treat them as proof of your status as a future student if you secure a place at uni.

Your 4-digit UCAS status code is XXXX
Your 16-digit UCAS status code is XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX

Both codes are unique to your UCAS application, so you cannot share them with anyone else.

….

Kind regards

UCAS


 

И ето кои са тези банки, в които по принцип може да се открият банкови сметки, но като правило след пристигане в UK:

Banks that use the 16 digit status code How to apply for a student bank account
Barclays bank logo Click www.barclays.co.uk/student(link is external) to discover and apply online for our Barclays student account and award-winning Barclays mobile banking app.
HSBC’s award-winning student bank account helps you overcome the hurdles of uni life. To find out more and apply, go to www.hsbc.co.uk/student(link is external), or visit a branch. Use your 16 digit status code from 18 July.
NatWest bank logo Get yourself #Uniproof with a NatWest student account. Apply in branch, over the phone or visit www.natwest.com/student(link is external) to find out more and apply online.
Royal Bank of Scotland logo You can open a Royal Bank of Scotland student account online, in branch or over the phone. Visit www.rbs.co.uk/student(link is external) for more information.

На въпросът  “Може ли да се открие онлайн (още преди заминаването) UK Bank Account ? ” – ОТГОВОРЪТ е НЕ!

Защото и 4-те банки, които предлагат преференции за студентите изискват да сте били Ordinary RESIDENT (постоянно живеещи) в UK през последните 3 години – нещо, което не е вярно за всички заминаващи българи!

С това изикване може “да се сблъскате” в секция eligibility criteria – т.е. дали сте подходящи за откриване на банкова сметка онлайн.
