Universal credit, caring and studying

All about money
Hi all,

I am currently out of work to care for my partner and have recently started a college course that is 16.5 hours a week. I claim universal credit and carers allowance and she is claiming universal credit and PIP.

I’m not exactly sure how the course will affect our universal credit and was wondering if anyone could shed some light on this?

Thank you! :D
Hi Megan.

As far as studying goes , 21 hours is the magic figure.

Below that , no problem.
