Student Credit Card

If you're at college or university and have had a TSB Student Current Account for at least the last three months, our Student Credit Card could give you that extra flexibility when you need it most.

How your Student Credit Card works:

  • We'll tell you the credit limit when you open your account. Remember to manage your money so you stay within this limit otherwise you will be charged a fee
  • You'll need to make at least the minimum payment each month. We'll tell you what the minimum monthly payment is on your statement, which will also tell you when payment is due
  • Interest is usually charged from the day of the transaction, at 21.95% p.a. (variable), however, you will not be charged interest on new purchases if you pay the full balance shown on your previous and current statement on time. There is no interest free period on balance transfers or cash withdrawals
  • Can be used with Apple Pay and Google Pay
  • Manage your credit card account online with our mobile app and Internet Banking
 

Only available to TSB Student bank account holders.

As with all credit cards, there are fees and charges for certain transactions, such as:

  • Cash withdrawals 

    Cash withdrawals means cash withdrawals, advances made by Card or Card number, gambling transactions, purchases of currency and cash related transactions, such as the purchase of travellers cheques, money orders or gaming chips

  • Using your card abroad
  • Missing a payment
  • Going over your credit limit

 

Eligibility

To be eligible for this card, you must be:

  • 18 or over
  • A UK resident
  • Have a regular income
  • NOT be currently declared bankrupt, have county court judgements or be subject to an individual voluntary agreement
  • Have had a TSB Student Current Account for at least the last three months.

  • A variety of ways to manage your account: online, by phone through one of our UK based call centres, or at a TSB branch
  • Mastercard® SecureCode to help keep your details secure when shopping online
  • Active account monitoring to spot any suspicious spending
  • Overseas emergency telephone assistance if you lost your card abroad

There may be lots of different reasons you might need to bank with us differently, either in the short term, or on a continuing basis. It could be because of your physical or mental wellbeing, or because of a life event you’ve experienced. Whatever the reason, we are committed to tailoring our support to your personal needs.

If you choose to tell us about your individual support needs, we will take the time to understand your circumstances and work with you to make sure you have the support you need when banking with TSB. We can add a Support Indicator to your account, which means whenever you talk to us, we'll be aware that you may need tailored support.
