For the past 5 years I worked full time and filled in a tax form each year.

Since this year I am studying a full time Masters. I don't receive any income, I pay my studies (without bursary) and I also pay my medical insurance each month.

Should I fill in a tax return form this year?

It would be best to file a return and say you have been unemployed.
