    Hi,

    I was wondering what the situation looks like with paying council tax if you are a student but don't live in a student house... Late July I will be moving to Glasgow and studying a full-time postgraduate course at the university there. But I will be living with my partner, who is not going to be a student and in full-time employment. Will we have to pay the normal price council tax or is there any discount, based on me being a full-time student?

    Thanks in advance!

    Full time students get a 25% discount on council tax. Your uni should provide you with a certificate stating you're a full time student.

    Full time students are exempt from paying council tax, if there is only one non student in a property they get the 25% discount and the onus is on them to pay.

    That came out wrong. But yes, you are right.
