Checking: this is the most common type of bank account for everyday needs. When you open a checking account, the bank will issue you a debit card that can be used to pay for purchases in most stores and to make cash withdrawals at ATMs. Charges made to your debit card are deducted from your account immediately. The bank typically issues you a few free temporary checks, but you will have to pay to order more. Many banks also have online banking options so you can manage your account and pay your bills online.
Savings: if you have a larger amount of funds for your studies, you can place it in a savings account. This type of account usually pays a small amount of interest on your savings. If you don’t need immediate access to your funds, ask the bank about other savings options.
