Licence refund could benefit local students

STUDENTS in the Bognor Regis area moving home for the summer could get a refund of part of their television licence.

As students across the region prepare for their exams, TV Licensing is reminding those moving home they might be able to claim a refund on their licence, worth £36.37.

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

Spokeswoman for TV Licensing Emma Cowlard said: “With exams fast approaching and the Easter term coming to an end, the student refund is fantastic news for students who planned ahead and bought their licence at the start of the academic year. It’s vital students understand the law when it comes to watching or streaming live TV or they risk prosecution and fine of up to £1,000.”
