Discount for nursing and midwifery students

If you're a full-time student nurse, you can apply for a council tax discount as a full-time student.

If you're studying part-time on a course leading to an appropriate registration of the Nursing and Midwifery Council Register, you may qualify for a council tax discount. Appropriate registration means registration of parts one, two, three, four, five, six or eight of the register.

Please note - A full council tax bill is based on at least two adults living in a property. Discounts do not apply if at least two people over 18 who live in the same property are counted for council tax purposes. If after discounting occupants there remains only one occupant then a discount of 25% of the council tax bill may be given.

Please note - You must continue to pay council tax in accordance with your bill until your discount has been granted. Failure to do so may result in recovery action which could incur costs.
