    Was it part or full time?

    Full time.
    That could be the issue that is causing the problem as UC would normally stop on taking up a full time course.
    Would any of the exceptions apply to you?

    Did you get a statement of reasons?

    Below is statement from DWP.

    The reasons why we cannot change our decision:
    Your LCWRA begins on the 7th of September 2023, because
    prior to this date you were not entitled to Universal Credit and
    this is the first date following your entitlement that you declared a
    health condition and provided supporting medical evidence.
    Therefore, your relevant period remains unchanged as this is
    your first WCA, you do not have a terminal illness and this is not
    a review decision of a previous benefit award.

    It's difficult to recall the exact timeline of events but IIRC I worked with Tescos between 11th - 23/7/23 and informed DWP of that job ending due to health issues. Two months after this I started a local college course 4/9/23 - 6/9/23 which once more ended due to my health.
    What really p*****s me off is that I started both due to unreasonable pressure from the DWP to get me to return to work/study without any consideration for my circumstances, health or wellbeing.

    Can anyone assist me with this or should I throw in the towel?
