    I have several health issues which stopped my career a few years ago ,my mobility is bad and I suffer from chronic pancreatitis which has led to depression and anxiety, however my fingers and brain still function and i was wanting to start a computing course part time but i'm concerned the DWP will penalise me, my long term goal is just to keep my mental heath as good as i can keep it as my other conditions will only worsen basically i like learning it distracts me from the issues i have, so can i study part time and do i have to tell the DWP?

    You can study part time; but you have to inform ESA that you're studying. PIP only need to know if it means your needs have changed.
