    If a person is on middle DLA and receives ESA, how much would the ESA be reduced by with £9000 per year student loans for three years?

    Also would the DLA be affected by becoming full time student?

    The Student Loans go directly to your university so nothing should be affected

    The maintenance loans are different though.

    Going to move this to Disabled Student Forum because it's better suited there.

    Whether you take the maintenance loans or not, you'll be treated as having them; as it's money you're entitled to.

    Some money is disregarded for books and travel.

    DLA won't be affected. Unless there are aspects of your course which contradict why you receive DLA. Ditto your ESA.

    I read that, "If you receive student support in the form of a grant or a loan, this will probably reduce the amount of income-related ESA you can get."
