Student Additions account terms and conditions
If you are not happy with your account, you have a 14-day period in which to contact us to cancel your account or switch to another account. This period begins on the date your account is opened or the date you receive your terms and conditions and other account information, whichever is the later. If you contact us within this period to cancel or switch your account, we will refund any account fees you may have paid. However, if you cancel or switch your account at a later date, you will not be refunded the account fees that you have paid. If you wish to cancel or switch your account, you should tell us by writing to Barclays, Leicester LE87 2BB.
We want to hear from you if you feel unhappy with the service you've received from us.

If we do not resolve your complaint internally to your satisfaction, you may be able to refer it to the Financial Ombudsman Service at South Quay Plaza, 183 Marsh Wall, London E14 9SR (telephone: 08000 234 567).

(b) Degree incorporating a Foundation year: This is the first year of the degree qualification and is not classified as a Foundation Course. This is normally for engineering, science and biological science subjects, but not all universities use this. (c) Foundation Course - leading to a Degree: This is a one-year course that is often for arts related subjects. This must usually be passed before a student can progress with the rest of the course. If you are not sure whether the customer is studying a Foundation Degree or a Foundation Course, just contact the university or college for clarification of whether that part of the course is a degree equivalent qualification.
