NHS Bursary and housing benefit Watch
Wondering if anyone can help me please. How does the nhs bursary affect housing benefit? In terms of can I get housing benefit if I am getting a bursary?
Students can't usually claim housing benefit. There are exceptions though - the one I know of is if you're on DLA then you can claim housing benefit and ESA even if you're a student. However you have to be on a low enough income to qualify, and this includes not only your bursary but also any student loans you might be entitled to (even if you don't claim the full amount).
