Discounts for student nurses

Discounts for student nurses

Properties occupied only by a student nurse, or by student nurses, are entitled to a 50% discount.

You are classed as a student nurse for Council Tax purposes if you are studying for your first Inclusion on the Nursing Register. You should be taking a course which leads to registration on any Parts 1 to 6 or 8 of the register maintained under Section 10 of the Nurses, Midwives and Health Visitors Act 1979. You should be enrolled for the purpose of attending a full time course of Education at a college of nursing and midwifery or a college of health established by a regional Health Authority or University.

If you are already on the Register but are taking a further course you will not qualify for a discount.

You will be classed as a student, rather than a student nurse, if you’re:

  • studying for an Advanced Diploma in Nursing Studies, or
  • a nurse or health visitor on a relevant full time course based at a college or university, or
  • on a course leading to registration on Parts 10 or 11 of the register as a First inclusion
