    Aditional info: i'm 22 and I live with my carers who are my parents and brothers.

    your DLA / PIP will be unaffected from the point of view of your employment status as it is independent of whether you are working / on ESA /JSA or a student

    You wont get esa at uni as student finance counts as an income and as a student you re not able to look for work.

    You d probably get full student finance in your circumstances anyway which is at least 6k a year to live off

    disabled student allowances would probably pay for any help or support which you would need, depending on your disability

    Incorrect. Students on DLA are entitled to ESA. But their student loan counts as income, some of it anyway.
