Philip Robinson, Current Account Director at Lloyds Bank, said: “There's a lot of things to look forward to when heading off to college or university; getting to know people, learning more about a subject you love and finding your feet away from home. This year, we’re giving students a helping hand, with the potential to add £100 to their first-term funds. Hopefully this bonus will come in handy for all those initial study expenses - plus a drink with the new pal.”

Current Lloyds Bank Student account holders will continue to receive the benefits associated with their account when it was opened.
