Some students may be eligible for benefits

Most full-time students can't claim benefits but there are some exceptions. If you are a British Citizen or from an EU member state then you may be able to claim using one the categories below.  Some extra benefits might be also available if you are a part-time student.  If you would like more information or think you might qualify for any benefits mentioned here you can come and speak to us in ASK.

Please note that most benefits are now part of Universal Credit but if you have three or more children you might be able to claim the old benefits instead, including Income Support, Child Tax Credit, Working Tax Credit (with childcare) and Housing Benefit.
