Study abroad with HSBC International

Whether you're a parent getting ready for your child's future, a student looking to study abroad or you've recently graduated, you can be confident you'll get the international banking support you need with HSBC.

Why study abroad with HSBC?

  • Manage all of your HSBC accounts in one place

    You'll be able to view all of your HSBC accounts with one log on and send instant free transfers between your account and your friends and family's HSBC accounts.

  • Transfer credit history to your new country

    Establish your credit history in your destination country, so you'll be more likely to be accepted for credit, such as a credit card or loan.

  • Open an account even before you've moved

    Open an HSBC account at home and overseas in your new country even before you've moved. So, you can access your money as soon as you arrive.

  • Premier in one country, Premier in all

    Extend your Premier account to your child, so they can enjoy the same Premier privileges wherever they're studying.
