Council Tax

Council Tax is a property based tax which is payable to local councils to help fund the cost of services that they provide such as the police and fire service.  Most full time students are normally eligible for Council Tax exemption.  In order to satisfy the "full-time" criteria for council tax exemption you must:

  •  be required to attend University for a period of at least 24 weeks in the academic year and
  • undertake on average at least 21 hours of study, tuition or work      experience in each of these weeks.

Please refer to your local Council Tax Office for rules relating to Council Tax exemptions.
