Student bank accounts

  • As a student every cent you've got counts so having a bank account that's low on fees is must. The  good news is that most Australian banks offer fee free student bank accounts, but you'll generally need to show your student ID when applying. In addition to looking for an account with low or no fees, you'll also want to make sure that you opt for one with a convenient ATM network to you. Most bank accounts these days will have a digital wallet option like Apple Pay or Google Pay so you'll be able to make payments via a digital device. Check out some of the available student bank account options below.
