UC entitlement – FT student with partner who is a PSIC

Client is a FT student so the usual position is she wouldn’t be eligible for UC,  But one of the exceptions is a “student with a partner who is not a student”.  On a straightforward reading of this, she’d be able to claim as her partner isn’t a student but he is a PSIC.  What do you think?  Given that it is a joint claim then converted into a single claim, does the presence of him as a partner still allow her to get UC even though she’s a student? It seems illogical that having a partner who is a PSIC and not eligible himself would allow her to claim but I’d love your opinions.  Many thanks in advance
