Students at Worcester University reminded to claim TV licence refund

First published in News

TV licensing bosses are reminding students at the University of Worcester to claim a refund on their TV licence.

Students moving home for the summer may be able to claim a refund, worth £36.67, on their licence.

Students who purchased a TV licence at the start of the academic year will have a full three months remaining on their licence and refunds can be claimed for unused quarters. Students are encouraged to take advantage of the refund on the final unused quarter and enjoy summer with extra cash in their wallet.

To be eligible, students need to have a TV licence, be leaving their halls or rented accommodation and be moving to a licensed address.

Mark Binnersley, spokesperson for TV Licensing, said: “The student refund is brilliant news for students and we encourage those who bought their licence at the start of the academic year to take advantage of it. We want to help students understand the law when it comes to watching live TV on any device and help them avoid a fine of up to £1,000. Reminding them about the refund is part of knowing when you do and don’t need a licence.”
