In October, I will start a PhD at a university in England, and will be classified by my institution as a full-time student. The nature of the funding for my PhD is such that I will concurrently be employed by the university and pay tuition fees to the university out of my salary.
So I'm in the unusual position of being a full-time student, while also being employed in a full-time job.
My partner and I are planning to rent a flat together. She works in a normal-person job, so she isn't exempt from council tax, but it would be very nice if we could get the 25% single-person's discount by having me listed as exempt.
Is this possible?
