    You can only claim tax credits for a young person in full time non advanced education if they're under 20 years old and your area isn't a full universal credit area. If it's a full UC area and you don't already claim tax credits then you won't be able to claim this. Check your area here.

    If it's not a full UC area then how much you can receive will depend on circumstance. Pop your details into a benefits calculator like this one.
