Use your UCAS status codes to open a student account

Save yourself time and effort by using your UCAS status codes when opening a bank account. These codes allow a number of banks to confirm your eligibility for their student accounts. 

Once we receive your application, we create your personal status codes and you will find these in your application in your UCAS Hub.

Once your place at uni or college is confirmed, it's really important to remember to take your codes with you when you go to open a student account. This will speed up the whole process, by allowing the bank or building society to quickly confirm your status as a future student.

Remember: Your codes are unique to your application, so you cannot share them with your friends.
