Universal Credit and Students: Tuesday 29th May, 10:00am-4:30 pm, London South Bank University

With the introduction of universal credit, the benefit rules for students as we know them are swept away and new rules set up in their place. This one-day course explains which students will be able to claim universal credit and how student funding will affect the amount they get.

The course covers:

  • An overview of universal credit
  • Who is a full-time student for universal credit
  • Which students can claim

Trainer:  Gary Vaux - Gary is Head of Advice (Benefits & Work) at Hertfordshire County Council and is an experienced welfare benefits adviser, writer and trainer.  He also writes a benefits column for Community Care magazine.

US Loans:  Tuesday 15th May 2018, 10:00am-4:00pm, King's College London (Strand Campus)

This course will take you through the basics of administering US Student Loans – from institutional eligibility requirements, policies and procedures, systems and requirements and how to actually assess eligibility and entitlement for loans. We will then cover how you actually schedule disbursements and the timescales involved, look at some of the key resources available to support you and how to successfully pass an audit.

The session is suitable for those with no prior experience of US Loans as well as those needing a refresher.  Please bring a calculator!
