SHEFFIELD students getting ready to head off on their summer holidays from halls of residence and rented accommodation could be entitled to a refund of almost £37 on their annual TV licence.

Many students moving back to their parents’ homes will no longer need their own licences over the holidays.

If there are three full calendar months before their college-time licence expires, and the home they are moving to for the holidays is licensed, students are entitled to a refund for the unused quarter.

A colour licence bought in October last year would mean they could receive a refund of £36.37.

Pete Mercer, National Union of Students Vice-President, said: “The refund is great news for students, especially at the end of term when finances may be tight.”
