Yes it's doable if you get your childcare sorted out and maybe find a part-time job till your course finishes to help you if you require any more financial help.
Depending on your course you are doing then planning things out properly then you'll be able to do this.

I was a nature student when I did my degree as a midwife and I managed to maintain a part-time job alongside it ( was full-time job but went part-time ) to help finance the course so I didn't borrow any loans as I had the bursary to help me as well. I qualified in 2019.
I'm not a mother yet but lots of people on here seen to managed things who got children.

Yeah I think your course isn't available for bursaries as those are for nursing courses.

You'll be able like you said apply for loans that is obviously linked to what income your household have as this I think determine your amount you can get !!!

Just do not overdo things but if you find it hard to cope with things if you doing another job then drop the extra job but you'll not know how it will go till you try things out first.

There is few part time jobs that will suit your needs especially if you not fussy on jobs you do.

If you get it right then you'll be able to cope with everything. Xx
