not sure if this helps?

You must also tell the Tax Credit Office if your child:

 

turns 18 and stays in approved education or training

turns 19 and stays in approved education or training

Tell the Tax Credit Office as soon as possible to make sure you get paid the right amount of tax credit.

Yes, it is true. You can continue to receive Child Tax Credits for a young person who is in full time non-advanced education until the day before that young person's 20th birthday. After that, payments will stop.
