Natwest has existed since 1968 which makes it fairly young in terms of existence in the UK banking scene, this means that it has been going for (At the time of writing) nearly forty eight years.

Natwest has attractive offers for people looking to get a Natwest student account. The bank has offers that will keep student’s best interests at heart. Natwest has various things that change over time as with most banks, so your bank charges may go up after four years or so, as with most banks. Some of the perks that they offer are:

  • You can get a Young Person’s Coachcard which will give you: 1/3 off standard UK fares, 10% off European fares, 10% off services to selected UK festivals and events and 1/3 off Scottish Citylink and Hovertravel services when booked through National Express.
