    You won't 'manage'. You can't work full time hours and expect to get decent marks on a degree course - it's just not going to happen.

    Agreed. There is a reason it is called a 'full time course'. If you don't put in the hours you will be lucky to even pass and get a 3rd let alone anything else. And if you want to use your degree you will need a 2:1 or First.
    How will you be able to go to lectures and seminars if you are working full-time. Have you really thought this through?

    When I was at uni, we were recommended not to do more than 16 hours working. I'm also sure I read somewhere that some unis don't like their students having jobs during term time.

    To answer your question, yes you can get the tuition fee loan.

    But no you can't physically do a full-time degree plus a full-time job and be successful at both.

    Your full time course may only be 16 hours spread over 4 - 5 days. But you'll then have to do some 30 odd hours of personal study on top. Can't see how you're going to fit in a full time job as well.

    Yes, you will still be eligible.
