Student discount or exemption

Student discount or exemption

 A student discount or exemption applies to anyone who is registered on a full-time course.  Students are required to study for at least 21 hours a week and the course duration is for at least 24 weeks in each academic year.

We can process your application from 14 days before the start of the course date.  At the time of applying you will need to provide

  • your council tax account number
  • the student certificate (which must be uploaded)

You must tell the Council within 21 days of any circumstances that may affect your entitlement.  Such changes may include:

  • leaving your course
  • changing your address

Please register / log in to My Account and complete the form called Council tax - student discount or if all the residents are students in the property, then you should complete the form called Council tax - exemption for property with all students.

Our Commitment

If you are approved for a student discount or exemption, you will receive a new council tax bill within 14 days of completing the application.
