Do not treat student maintenance loans as an income for Universal Credit

Petition Details

I would like the Government not to treat student maintenance loans as income when it comes to Universal Credit. This money is to help people survive some of the toughest years, and many students have course loads or work placements that make it impossible to do paid work.

Additional Information

As mature student, I found myself joining a health course firstly to help our health sector and improve some of our shortage we have as a country in medical staff as well as provide a better quality of life for my daughter. To do this I had to take out a loan to live on however I've found myself worse off due to Universal Credit taking student loans as an income.
