Jatin Patel, director of current accounts for Lloyds TSB, said: "Our student offering has been designed to provide the right financial help to students starting university, many of whom will be managing their money for the first time.
"As a key provider of Student Accounts in the UK we understand that starting university can be both an exciting and challenging time. That's why our account is packed with features that will really help students to both manage their money and make it go further throughout their student life."
Lloyds TSB offers students a number of smart ways to help them manage their money, including Money Manager, a pioneering online service that allows students to view their spending habits and keep track of their finances whilst maintaining a budget at university. Money Manager is a free online service for internet banking customers that can help support students by categorising spend into groups, such as eating out, clothes and entertainment.
Students with a Lloyds TSB account also have access to the Lloyds TSB Mobile Banking App, which provides a variety of features, including the ability to view account balances, pay bills and transfer money between accounts. Alternatively, students can log on to Mobile Banking through their mobile browser, using their Internet Banking details.
