If you are a full-time taught student, you are automatically exempt from paying Council tax. You can ask for a confirmation of your student status at the Infohub.

Postgraduate research students

If you were a full-time student during your supervised study period, and you live in Aberdeen, you can apply for council tax exemption for the first 12 months of your writing-up period.
