I work part time 20 hours husband is full time. We used to get tax credits but they ended as apparently we owed them money which were now paying back. Applied for UC have just had this response as husband doing an open uni part time course. What does it mean? I’m a little confused;

A basic entitlement condition for receiving Universal Credit is that a person is not receiving education.
Your circumstances have been considered, as you are receiving education on a part time basis, and you meet certain exception criteria, you will be entitled to receive Universal Credit.
The amount you are entitled to will reflect any student finance you receive. Your payments will be detailed in your monthly statement.
