Council Tax Information

Council tax is a tax applied to residential properties in England, Wales and Scotland (but not Northern Ireland). Council tax is applied to properties, not people, but exemptions from paying the tax are based on the sort of people who live in the property. A property is exempt from council tax if everyone who lives there falls into at least one of several categories, including full-time college or university students. As such, full-time students on our September intake are usually exempt from paying Council Tax. Approximately three weeks into the course we’ll give you a Council Tax Certificate, so that you can prove you are exempt. If you have any queries, please contact the Student Services team at your chosen centre.

If you attend an accelerated LPC course, your local authority may not grant exemption from council tax due to the criteria applied. We recommend that you check this with your local authority.
