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.
After lobbying the University, Ayrden is pleased to announce that the end of studies date for students has now been set to the end of the academic year, meaning that third year students will no longer be expected to pay council tax until the end of the June, putting money directly back into their pockets.
