opening a bank account in the UK as a Finnish (EU) citizen

Is it practically possible to open an account in the UK while not residing there? Has anybody here ever done it? I'm in need of one and any information will be much appreciated.

And why you need to open an account if you don’t live there?
It’s almost impossible to open an account without valid address in UK. However you can open an offshore account in HSBC if you deposit £50,000 or more.

Hi, I am an non-EU citizen and was a student in UK. Of course, a RP is needed for opening a bank account there. Some of my friends who already left UK can still keep their bank accounts open (they operate transactions still), but in my case, the bank contacted me and required to close my bank account as my notice of leaving the country (maybe it depends on the banks).
However, I think its impossible for you to open a bank account in UK without permit of leaving there even you're an EU citizen.
Cheers!
