Natwest are one of the UK's biggest banks, and they are well aware that if they offer a fantastic product to Students now, these same students will likely stay with the bank forever. In fact, the unrivalled Interest free overdraft and Student Credit Card they offer, could even make up for their lack of student loan product.

All they ask to maintain the overdraft is that you make regular use of the account by paying money in every three months, and taking money out three times per month.
They also offer a Student Credit Card with a limit of up to 500 pounds. The card brings with it up to 56 days interest free credit, and some brilliant extras like discounts on CDs, sports gear, travel guides, gadgets and short breaks. Typical 18.9% APR (variable).
