Can I do free course on LCWRA

Hi I get LCWRA and know full time students can’t claim UC, but would I be allowed to do free courses online to learn about interesting things without it affecting my claim? would I have to declare this? curious!

    Fulltime students can claim UC in some circumstances @water_quack1 <3 But their student finance is used when calculating income. 

    But yeah, if you want to do free courses online you can without it affecting your UC claim. You don't need to declare it either <3 
    What are you going to study??

    I’ve always liked learning and building all sorts of new skills but at the moment I’m hoping to study/learn about something like youth work, school administration or maybe even working with kids who have special needs, I know I wouldn’t be able to cope in a job as I am right now because of disability but I still want to give myself a fighting chance and some skills that might help me in the future! So some free introduction courses online seemed like a nice idea, thanks so so much for your reply !!
