    Enquiry Details

    Please note that a student who is enrolled on a full time course of education is not treated as a resident for Council Tax purposes. This is known as a ‘discount disregard’. This means that, dependent on the number of other residents in your household, you may be entitled to a discount on the amount of Council Tax that you pay.

    To qualify for a discount, a student should be undertaking a full time course of education at an approved educational centre. The course must last for at least one academic year, must require a student to study for at least 24 weeks in each academic year and involves at least 21 hours of study a week during term time. Evening classes, correspondence courses and job-related training do not qualify as full time courses.

    For this discount to apply you must upload a student certificate issued by the college/university with this form. Failure to do so will result in a delay in your application being processed

      The information that I have given on this form is correct. If I qualify for the Student Discount, I agree to tell Flintshire County Council if the student named in this application leaves the educational course before the expected course end date, or if someone in the household reaches the age of 18 moves in or another adult joins the household.
