Hi guy hope someone can set me on my way with this issue.
I'm graduating from my undergraduate course in Bangor Uni on the 12th of July and am starting a Masters course in September. I've been completing a full time internship for the past month so haven't had to think much about work or anything like that. But the job comes to and end this week and I was wandering is anyone knew anything about applying for any benefits in the period between courses. Technically I'm not a student anymore anywhere as I've left my current Uni but haven't registered with the new one.
In normal circumstances I'd just try and apply for a job but I had an accident at the start of March where I shattered my ankle and couldn't physically do any jobs such as waitress or bar work (the usual Student summer jobs) at the moment due to this injury.
Any advice would be useful, I'm obviously not sole relying on a student forum though, I'm trying to talk to someone at Citizens Advice as well. But any advice or experience from here would still be appreciated.

Im not 100% sure so obviously still ask CAB or the job centre but i think you can apply as you aren't a student and havent applied for a new course yet. I just finished my second year of uni and am taking a year out, so my local housing officer rang and they said I could apply for ESA and housing benefit.... so I guess same rules for you
