    I'm pretty sure most students get paid under £10,500 a year. Which is the personal allowance. So are we exempt from paying tax entirely i.e. it doesn't get taken off our wages. Or do we just have to apply to get it refunded at the end of the year?

    You will be tax exempt i.e you take home what you earn. You will however make a NI contribution, but if your salaried at £10,000 at year its only about £253 per tax year.

    If you earn under something like £150 a week then you don't need to pay any tax. Above £150 a week but below £10k a year then you pay NI. Above £10k then you pay both.

    Okay that's good to know. I'm starting a £133 a week job when I get back so looks like I'll avoid both. Can get saving for a well earned holiday after uni!
