Returning after travelling post grad

Just a quick question, having travelled for 5 months post grad what if any benefits can a person get. 

Had worked up until day of travelling, part time whilst studying and full time during breaks. 

Will be due a tax rebate for 2022-23 tax year as only worked April - Sept and then potentially Feb - March. 

If UC is claimable is that from the day they return to the UK, I believe you have to be in the UK to claim UC. Or can they claim a week or so earlier and change the date of any meeting if they’re not back in the UK?
