Students and graduates to benefit from 1|2|3 world products

5th August 2014 Print

University students will be the latest to gain from the range of 1|2|3 products this week with the introduction of Santander’s 1|2|3 Student Current Account.  The 1l2l3 Student Current Account allows students to earn up to 3% interest as well as receiving a free 4-year 16-25 Railcard which can save customers over £700 in train fares.
“While many student costs are rising, over four years 16-25 Railcard holders can take advantage and save over £700 on their rail fares. That means they can get out to enjoy more time with friends and family for less.” – Andrew Robertson, Head of Marketing at ATOC”.
The 1|2|3 Student Current Account also offers an interest-free, fee-free arranged overdraft up to a maximum of £1,500 in the first three years of study, £1,800 in year four and up to £2,000 in year five. The 16-25 Railcard, in-credit interest and interest-free Overdraft show the long term value Santander is offering, which is why more students opened their accounts with Santander than any other bank in 2013. .
Steve Pateman, Head of UK Banking commented:  “We understand the importance of banking to students and with strong interest rates on all our student accounts, as well as discounted travel, now students have every reason to start banking with Santander. With our 1|2|3 journey bringing ease to banking for individuals all over the UK, the new student portfolio is perfect for students as they become more aware of their finances.”
Santander’s Universities Global Division is continuing to support the higher education system, with a number of schemes in place providing investment for students all over the UK including scholarships and internships. With over 60 direct UK University relationships and partnerships continuing to expand, Santander knows what makes a Student Current Account.”
