Student Account

College is calling, so is your new Current Account!

The letter P for PTSB carved out in a slate of black marble

Opening a Student Account is simpler than ever! 

We understand that you’re busy putting your head down and figuring out how to make your mark on the world while having good fun at the same time! So if you’re a student over 18, we have a current account that’s right for you.

No senseless fees!

With our Student Current Account you won’t pay any senseless bank charges.

  • No day-to-day transaction charges such as direct debit fees, fees for cash lodgements and withdrawals cash, or fees for using your debit card to make purchases in euro.  
  • No quarterly fee for maintaining the account.

Other transaction charges may apply. These charges include:

  • ATM usage outside the Eurozone.
  • Using a Debit card for purchases in a foreign currency or outside the Eurozone.
  • Referral item fees or unpaid item fees. A referral item fee of €5 per item (up to a maximum of €15 a day) will be charged if a standing order, direct debit or cheque is presented for payment and is paid, but there isn’t enough money in your account to meet the debit at the time. An unpaid item fee of €10 will be applied to your Student Current Account for all unpaid direct debits, standing orders or cheques.

Please see our full terms and conditions and the Personal and Business Banking Charges for more details.  

Our Student Account is available for a period of 5 years. After 5 years your Student Account will convert to the personal current account available at the time.
