The tax system in the United Kingdom is set up pretty well for those who work traditional jobs full time. That being said, some are victimized by it because they do not meet that traditional job model. Students in particular are likely to fall into this category. They may be working part time and not earning very much money but still paying in high amounts in taxes.
The gov.uk. site itself details how students are likely to pay into the tax system:
If you work for an employer in term-time then your Income Tax and National Insurance are usually taken automatically from your wages through Pay As You Earn (PAYE).
The student tax refund tends to come as a result of being taxed automatically and at a higher rate than you should have been. Unfortunately, there are many who do not know about the refund and do not take advantage of it as a result. They are not claiming the money that is rightfully theirs.
Professionals can always be hired to work on getting this refund money for the student who is not sure how the system works or is otherwise too busy to worry about doing these things for themselves. There are plenty that fall into those categories, and this should not preclude them from receiving the money that they are rightfully owed.
Hiring professionals means that a small portion of the recovered money goes to those individuals, but that is still better than receiving nothing back at all. Students are some of the people most in need of extra funds, so it is important to make sure that things like this are available to them.
