Universal credit, caring and studying

Hi all,

I am currently out of work to care for my partner and have recently started a college course that is 16.5 hours a week. I claim universal credit and carers allowance and she is claiming universal credit and PIP.

Iā€™m not exactly sure how the course will affect our universal credit and was wondering if anyone could shed some light on this?

Thank you! :smiley:

Hi Megan.

As far as studying goes , 21 hours is the magic figure.

Below that , no problem.
