    So I dropped out of uni in march 2016 after completing my first year (dropped out during second year) and went on universal credit from july to September, i started a course at uni in September at a different uni retaking my second year. When i called universal credit to no longer wanting to receive it after a change in my circumstances they took my details about my course and said i may still be able to receive it. Im at uni for 21 hours and i still receive universally credit but i dont think im
    Supposed to as ive checked who can receive it (student wise) and i dont fit into that category. I got a letter today saying i need to go to an appointment but when i rang to rearrange it they said to disregard the letter and they have cancelled the appointment. So they know i am in education under 21 hours and that I receive a student loan of )
    £4000 a year. Should i still be receiving universal credit? Would they have already stopped it? Or do i call them and ask? They already know my circumstances so im unsure?
