Lone parents get income support and child tax credits if not working/student. Oh and child benefit. Don't know about universal credit. When I was a student I had a bursary plus a student loan. I also had child tax credits and child benefit. But wasnt entitled to income support or housing benefit. Everything is means tested. I think you have less than 5000 in bank too. Your best bet is to make an app with the lone parent advisor at the jobcentre. They will give you a print out of what you are entitled to.
