NatWest international student requirements:
To apply for an account you need to be completing a full-time undergraduate course lasting at least 2 years; completing a full-time postgraduate course; or training as a nurse, at a UK university or college of higher education. Please ensure you have read what documentation is also required.
You also need to be aged 17 or over and have a UK residential address.
Once you get the account, don't forget to get the app!
It includes Get Cash which lets you go out with just your phone and get money from selected ATM's. Don't forget about Pay Your Contacts either!- Pay your mates back that fiver you borrowed with just their phone number.
Plus, it also does all of the simple stuff too, like tell you your balance or where your nearest branch is.
NatWest Mobile App is available on selected smartphones, to personal current account customers with a debit card, Online Banking and UK mobile number.
For Get Cash, limits apply to the service, including a maximum withdrawal limit of £250 per day. The amount requested must be within the daily withdrawal limit for your debit card and there is a maximum limit of 2 Get Cash withdrawals per day. You must also have at least £25 available funds to withdraw from your account.
With Pay Your Contacts, as long as you're aged 16 or over, you can send money using our app to someone with a UK mobile number who has the NatWest/RBS Mobile Banking app. If they don’t have the app, don’t worry. You can still send them money as long as they have a valid UK Visa debit card, credit card or prepaid card. There’s also a maximum payment limit of £250 a day. You must also have available funds to send from your account.
We know life keeps you pretty busy. Access your account anytime with 24-hour UK call centres, Online Banking and our Mobile Banking app.
Opening your Student Account as an international student is easy, but we will need some documentation from you to verify your identity and address in branch after you've applied.
NatWest require two forms of documentation:
- One original document that confirms your identity
- One original document that confirms your address whilst in the UK
