Student Discount

Households where everyone's a full-time student don't have to pay Council Tax.

To count as a full-time student, your course must:

  • last at least one year
  • involve at least 21 hours study per week

If you study for a qualification up to A level and you're under 20, your course must:

  • last at least three months
  • involve at least 12 hours study per week

When submitting your application please email with your student certificate exemption from your university or college.
