Request a Bank Letter
We recommend that you open a bank account with HSBC.
To apply for an ‘HSBC Passport Account’:
• you can be an EU or non-EU student
• you need to sign a contract for a minimum of 6 months
• you need to pay a fee of £8 per month
To open an account, you need to take:
• your passport or ID card
• proof of address (you can use an original letter from Bloomsbury International)
If you are staying with a homestay family, please do not use their address to open a bank account without asking them for permission first.
