Closed petition Change the way Universal Credit is worked out regarding Student Finance

I want Universal Credit to be looked into regarding Student Finance. Students have money deducted off their monthly Universal Credit due to the amount of Student Finance they receive. I believe this shouldn’t be the case as it is a Student LOAN which students will eventually have to pay back.

More details

I want the Government to scrap the ‘other income’ on Universal Credit regarding student finance, especially single parent students who are trying to better themselves going to university to provide a future for their families. A certain amount of student finance is not taken into consideration by DWP, but in my eyes students shouldn’t have any money taken off their UC as it is a student LOAN which has to be paid back.
