Students can get TV Licence bonus

As university and college terms come to an end for the summer break, TV Licensing is reminding students across Northern Ireland, who are moving back home, they could be eligible for a very useful refund of almost £37 on the final quarter of their annual TV Licence.

For many students a little extra cash is always welcome, especially when many will not need their TV Licence over the summer break. To be eligible, students need to have a TV licence, be leaving their halls or rented accommodation and moving back to a licensed address.

If there are three full calendar months before the licence expires, they are entitled to a refund for the unused quarter.

A colour TV Licence bought in October 2013 cost £145.50, so the refund is £36.37.

For further information, complete an online form at or call TV Licensing on 0300 790 6090.
