AIB Student Plus Account

Specially designed for you

For many students, college represents a first taste of real freedom and the start of a few fun filled years. But with this new found freedom also comes the responsibility of managing your money, that's why we've set up the AIB Student Plus Account. It's designed to make it easy for you to manage your finances, so it doesn't interfere with your studies or socialising.

Who can apply for an AIB Student Plus Account?

The AIB Student Plus Account is available to any person enrolling or currently enrolled in any full time third level educational course. Courses must have a minimum duration of one academic year. Eligible students include:

  • Irish students going abroad;
  • Students coming from abroad; and
  • Students completing post graduate courses.

Banking Free of Maintenance and Transaction Fees

You will not be charged account maintenance or transaction fees on your AIB Student Plus Account.

Banking Free of Maintenance and Transaction Fees does not extend to Bank Service Charges. Full details of our fees and charges are published in our booklet 'A Guide to Fees and Charges for Personal Accounts'. This booklet is available here or from any AIB branch.

AIB Debit Card

The AIB Debit Card* is a convenient combined payment card with Chip & PIN security technology. You can use your card for in-store purchases (Point of Sale) and cash withdrawals at ATMs in Ireland and abroad. You can also use your card to shop online or pay for goods or services over the phone. You can make Contactless payments where you see the contactless sign.

AIB Student MasterCard

As an AIB Student Plus Account holder, you can apply for an AIB Student MasterCard (applicants need to have held a bank account for a minimum of 6 months). This credit card** is designed specially to meet the lifestyle of a full time third level student. It's a convenient way to shop online and pay for day-to-day expenses, and allows you to make repayments on a schedule that fits your budget. A credit card is also one of the safest ways to pay for goods, services and travel expenses abroad, giving you protection in emergencies. And it's discreet so you don't have to carry large amounts of cash.
