My daughter is in full time education studying for a BA honours. She is in receipt of DLA at the middle rate care, high rate mobility. We have just taken the DWP to tribunal and won so she is able to claim ESA. My question is will she be put into the support group or work related activity? I'm confused because she isn't saying she can't work, but she can't study full time and do a part time job to help with her income whilst she studies. By this definition, it would be too tiring for her to complete all her degree commitments and turn up for work related activities. Ironically, she's desperate to find employment when she's completed her BA honours, she just needs a leg up whilst studying. Can anyone tell me what help she can get and whether she will have to attend interviews etc on ESA? Also, can she claim housing benefit? Many thanks for any help as I'm so confused!

It's up to the dwp to decide which group she goes in.
She can claim housing benefit, depending on income due to her DLA.
