Hey does anyone here claim ESA but study at the same time? I've been on ESA since January but started studying at college last month only 2 hours Monday, 2 1/2 hours Tuesday and 8 hours Thursday. I have RA and mental health problems but I'm having an assessment, the work capability one I think in two weeks and I'm worried they'll say if I can study then I can work. I simple cannot do both at the same time and even if I did work then I'd never be able to earn as much I would get in ESA and I run the risk of making my health worse.
The whole point I'm doing this course is so I can become a Teacher and get back into work but it will be another 2 1/2 years before the end of my study and even then I would only ever work part time.
Anyone had similar experiences? I just want to be prepared in advance for my ESA meeting as I can't afford to have them take it away.
Thanks in advance!
