Postgraduate Full Time Loan and Housing Benefit Watch
I currently claim Universal Credit and receive the Jobseekers Element and Housing Element. Now I understand my Jobseekers element would stop should I become a full time postgraduate student. I intend to claim the maximum postgraduate loan available. I understand 30% of the income is taken into account from a postgraduate loan. Does that mean I'd still get my housing element but that would be reduced? Very confused here.
Universal credit in general will be reduced by whatever a month, not housing benefit specifically. Also, you might want to check if you can still claim as a student? My understanding was that only disabled students were still eligible for UC.
