Your child and university

A helping hand for when they head off into higher education

Be prepared


Savings goals

Set up a personal savings goal and put regular money aside to help support your child financially.


Making the most of uni

From budgeting to getting a routine, help your child make the most of their time at university with our handy tips.


Cashback and rewards

From kitchen essentials to tech equipment, you can get cashback when you shop for student must-haves1.


Student additions

With our student bank account, your child could get an overdraft when they open their account (subject to application and status), make payments with their mobile and get cashback offers,1 too.

While at uni

Tech pack

You can protect your child’s devices as well as your own – so long as they live at home outside of term time. Our Tech Pack takes care of up to 4 mobiles and an unlimited number of gadgets worth up to £1,500.

Get covered

Your child can protect their possessions with our student insurance. Or, if you have existing contents insurance with us, you could get a student contents extension for items they take with them.

Fraud awareness

There are lots of ways fraudsters can take advantage of your child at university. Our handy tips and practical information could help them to avoid fraud and scams.

Managing card settings

Your child can keep their money safer with our fraud prevention features in the Barclays Mobile Banking2 app. They can temporarily freeze their card if they misplace it, decrease their cash machine withdrawal limits and turn off remote purchases.

Don't forget


Sending Money

For an easy way to send money, use the Pingit app – you just need your child’s mobile number3. It’s great for little treats, or even emergencies.


Barclays Mobile banking

Managing your money on the go is a handy way to keep track of your finances. You can check your balance, make payments, get cashback1 and more2. Your child could download it, too, if they have an account with us
