* Representative Example (based on using a Student account)

A variable representative rate of 0% APR

A variable annual interest rate of 0% EAREAR is the Equivalent Annual Rate. This is the annual interest rate of an overdraft. This means you are charged over the year based on how often and how much you are overdrawn by, and the effect of compounding it – charging interest on interest already charged. This interest rate does not include any other fees and charges.

Based on Borrowing £1,200

This example assumes you are in the second year of your studies

How much does my overdraft cost in pounds and pence?

As an example, the interest cost of borrowing £500 is:

£0.00 for 7 days

£0.00 for 30 days

£0.00 for 60 days

How does our overdraft compare?
