Great for easy budgeting

We know how important budgeting is when you are a student, which makes a prepaid debit card a great option as you can only spend what is loaded onto the card and can’t go overdrawn. You can easily track your spending in our mobile banking app and view pending direct debits and standing orders.

Working while a Student

Many International Students are eligible to work part-time in the UK, however, a few factors affect this. It’s best to check with your course leader first before applying for a job while you study in the UK.

Many employers in the UK require you to have a UK bank account or current account so they can pay your wage in to.

Banking for International Students

Finding a banking solution if you are an International Student in the UK can prove difficult as many traditional high street banks require three months proof of address and utility bills within the UK to open a bank account with them.

A personal bank account is also referred to in the UK as a current account.

Not having a banking solution while living in the UK can prove difficult with everyday tasks such as paying for rent, utility bills and mobile phone payments etc.

Paying with cash for services while in the UK doesn’t only take extra time but can also become costly with some services adding an admin cost when not paying via bank transfer, standing order or direct debit.

Financial Inclusion

At Suits Me we believe in equality and financial inclusion and that anyone should be able to have access to a banking solution. Especially in today’s modern society that we currently live in where payments revolve around banking, online banking, bank transfers and direct debits to name a few. We aim to provide the underbanked and unbanked access to fair and transparent banking solutions and financial services.

Being an international student in the UK can be both very exciting and initially quite stressful when it comes to organising documentation and paperwork. We want you to enjoy your time here in the UK with the financial freedom to experience all that you possibly can.
