Students across the UK may be entitled to a refund of £50 on their TV licence fee.
New rules introduced in April last year mean that students can claim for any full months left on their licence – as long as they’re moving out of their halls or rented accommodation and moving to a licensed address.
So if you’re a student and bought your licence last October, at the start of the university term, and moved out in May, you could receive a refund worth around £50.50.
Applying for the TV Licence refund is simple and can be done online or over the phone, on 0300 790 6090. You just need to have your TV licence details to hand and evidence to show it’s no longer needed, such as a copy of the end of your tenancy agreement.

What does TV Licensing say?
Jason Hill, spokesperson for TV Licensing, said: “We’re encouraging all eligible students to take up the refund, which is quick and easy to apply for.
“It’s important students buy a TV Licence when starting university to take advantage of the flexible payment options and avoid a fine of up to £1,000.”
