    Unfortunately not, disabled students are unable to claim UC unless they have already been found to have limited capability for work. More information here. https://www.disabilityrightsuk.org/news/2021/december/disabled-students-lose-entitlement-universal-credit-week
    Students usually receive student finance, are they receiving this?
    They can also look at claiming a Disabled student allowance https://www.gov.uk/disabled-students-allowance-dsa


    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
