If someone is a Full Time Student on Universal Credit are they able to access AEB funding to complete a qualification?
No one has replied to this post.
You dill need to check the AEB funding rules.

Thanks Martin, I've tried that but couldn't find anywhere it talks about students.

What type of student?

Yeah, would be a little unusual for an HE student with SLC loan to be on UC, I think?
However, there's nothing explicit that says you can't fund them (unlike for Apprenticeships where it isn't allowed), so sure, why not? ;)
There *used* to be stuff about not enrolling cohorts of HE students (eg Sports Science students doing coaching quals) but that seems to have fallen off and was always OK for one off learners...
