We’ve come to the end of our Q&A session today. Thank you very much to everyone who took part – I hope we managed to be of assistance and provide the information that you were looking for.
We will hold many more of these virtual open day events over the coming months so please check www.pg.bham.ac.uk now and again to see what we’ve got lined up for the future. If you’d like to visit our campus (in real life!), our next Postgraduate Open Day will take place on Wednesday 22 November 2017. We also run bespoke campus tours throughout term time and Cafés at which you can meet current students.
Assuming that we collect all the necessary docs, like our Student ID etc., when can we go to a bank and open an account there (for example, the same or the next day)?
That would depend how busy our banks are on campus, as you will appreciate, there will be a lot of students opening bank accounts at the beginning of the year (local and overseas!) so they may ask you to make an appointment for later in the week.
However, we do have a few options, Barclays, Santander and a Lloyds bank all on or very near to campus so you will be able to sort something out quickly after your arrival to the University. If they do become extremely busy, there are always the larger branches of these banks in the city centre.
Hope this helps!

Hello again! Could i apply for a bank letter (in order to give me all the bank details) from Greece? And if yes, how can i do this?
you can ask for a bank letter now by emailing student help email@example.com or by ordering it through the online shop. However, student services is very busy at this stage, and it is easier to simply pick up a bank letter during Welcome Week. You would not be able to open a UK bank account upon arrival either.
I hope this makes sense.
