Ok so a quick breakdown, lost my job back in may after being of sick, still not fit to work so in the process of applying for ESA/DLA/Housing+Council Tax Benefit.
The thing is i've been looking at doing a college course in september, it would give me something to do whilst i recover and would slowly intrgate me back into society, and i'd be learning a new skill as well. On tthe website i says that if you are on certain benefits (JSA/ESA etc) then you don't have to pay course fees BUT and this is where i'm getting confused, if i was to be a full time student (2 year foundation degree) then surely i would lose entitlement to benefits??
Would i be better off trying to find a part time course?

Is this higher or further education? And will you be entitled to loans and /or grant?
