I finished undergraduate course in university back in May this year and I have a spot to study masters in September 2021 (16 months between when I finished my undergraduate and starting my postgraduate), however, I am wondering if I will be able to claim Universal Credit as I want a job to do something to fill in my free time and I kind of need the money.

So I'm wondering will I be eligible to claim Universal Credit? I am 23 years old, single with 0 children.

Yes. You should have put your claim in the moment you finished uni. You cna claim the moment you meet the criteria and cease to be a student. You will cerase to be eligible the moment you resume being a student i.e Sept 21. You should have asked/ checked sooner.
