How does the Council Tax affect Students? To qualify for exemption as a student you must be undertaking a course of education. This is defined as a programme of study:-
on which students are normally required to attend for a period of at least 24 weeks in the academic year and would ordinarily require, in the opinion of Glasgow International School of English Language, a student undertake tuition, study or work experience amounting to an average of 21 hours per week.
All full-time registered students taking our intensive General English or exam preparation courses will normally qualify for exemption as a student provided they attend their programme of study for at least 24 weeks in the academic year. Please ask at time of enrolment, if your course of study qualifies you for Council tax discounts.
