International students can find the process of opening a UK bank account challenging and frustrating. It can take weeks.
You don’t have to face the same problems though. Open your Aspire e-account with debit card easily online even before leaving home. The convenient, all-purpose account with student discounts.
If you want to, you can give your parents integrated access so they can transfer money to you at any time.
When you open an Aspire Account you can start using it straight away, even before you leave home, to pay for accommodation or tuition fees for example.
Then when you arrive in the UK and confirm your UK address we can send your Visa debit card to you overnight.
Because we believe all your Banking and Foreign Exchange problems should be sorted before you arrive in the UK,
So you can relax and get on with living!
