My student finance has come through and I have been doing some Google research! am wondering if any of you have had issues with UC once you have started university and have your student loan. I have just read some horror stories about UC taking ALL of the student loan as income (student finance state this is wrong on the gov.uk website) and have left single parents with no help and they are living off the loan solely. If this is the case, I cannot go to university, it is not possible. I really need some advice or someone to tell me they’ve had a good experience and not to worry.
I applied for an advance learner loan and a big chunk of my benefits have been reduced. All I have as benefits now covers my rent and bills. I have to eat round my parents. I was also told that the loan shouldn’t affect my benefits as I will be paying it back. It only covers tuition fees.
