Council tax win for third year students

It was brought to the attention of our VP Education, Ayrden Pocock, that third year students were being made to pay council tax from the date of their last exam at UWE, which for some was as early as April. With many students still having to perform academic activities following their last exam, Ayrden took this issue to the University.
