    out of interest, I've read people saying you canot claim during Uni 'holidays' ... can you claim during the University term(s)? Or is it the same as the holidays?
    You can't claim when you're at university at all. You used to be able to claim unemployment benefit (what JSA replaced) during the holidays but that's been stopped.
