Student Advice is supporting National Apprenticeship Week

As part of National Apprenticeship Week (3rd – 9th February), we want to make our apprentice students aware of the financial advice and support available to them whilst studying at the University of Brighton.

6 useful facts about UoB Apprentices

All apprentices enrolled on a full time higher or degree level apprentice programme

  • Can be treated as exempt from paying Council Tax

The same rules apply to apprentices as other full time students ie if they live in a household comprising solely of full time students, the whole household is exempt or if they live with just one other person over 18 who not a student, they get 25% discount etc.

Apprentices may need to obtain a Council Tax exemption letter from the Student Information Desk, depending on where they live.

Please contact the Student Advice Service if you have a question about anything money related, including DWP Benefits, or have a look at the Apprentices factsheet for more general Apprentice information and FAQs.

We are here to help anyone currently enrolled on a course, or anyone thinking about an Apprenticeship pathway in the future

Best wishes
