Student nurses

You may get a discount if the student nurse is:

  • employed as a student nurse but taking a course which will lead to first registration in the Nurses’ Part or the Midwives’ Part of the register maintained by the Nursing and Midwifery Council under the Nursing and Midwifery Order 2001; or
  • not employed as a nurse but taking a nursing degree or diploma course and getting a student grant or scholarship.

Does an exemption apply?

Sometimes - if all the residents in a property are student nurses in full-time education and/or full-time students, then an exemption from Council Tax applies.

Click to expandHow can I get proof that I've been exempt from Council Tax?

You may want to have proof of exemption for many reasons but most often you may be asked for this by landlords/letting agents as they demand to see it before releasing your bond/deposit.

Landlords/Letting agents cannot be held liable for a period you are resident and receiving an exemption from Council Tax. See FAQ number 26 on the web link below for details you can quote to your landlord/letting agent instead of a copy exempt notice.

We can only send an exemption notice direct to the property, which will state the dates in which the exemption has applied, though it must be via post so you must request this before you move out.

You can request this using the Contact Us form on this page. Please include your name, the address the enquiry relates to and the address you'd like us to post the notice to. ​​​​​
