To count as a full-time student, your course must:
If you live in a household where everyone is a full-time student, your household will be exempt, however if you live with residents who are not full-time students, they will still have to pay but may be eligible for a discount.You need to have an exemption certificate, issued by Leeds Metropolitan to prove that you are a full-time student. These will be available from our Student Portal from November.
