Bank Letters

If a student needs to open a Bank account in the UK, the University of Essex can produce a letter which provides the specific information required by the Bank. It will confirm that the student is registered on a course of study, their nationality and country of residence, permanent home address and UK term time address, course name and the start and end date of the course.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: If ordering a Bank Letter all students must ensure that their term time contact address and permanent home address are correct before placing the order – Check and amend your address details now on myEssex.

All banks at the Colchester campus currently accept the letters. Please read our information for opening bank accounts.
