Universal Credit: Can students claim Universal Credit?

    While receiving Universal Credit, claimants are subject to an “assessment period” for usually every month they receive the benefit.

    So if your Universal Credit is paid monthly, any student income you receive during that assessment period will be taken off your total amount of Universal Credit.

    Loans which are intended to cover maintenance costs like rent and bills will be assessed and be deducted from your Universal Credit.

    Special Support Loans or Grants, which help provide support for study costs like books and travel, are not usually deducted from Universal Credit.
