How easy it to juggle the two?
I am currently working part time as a civil servant doing twilight shifts ( 4.30 to 9.00pm) Monday to Friday. If I did my Masters in History full time, would that fit in with my job okay? How many hours per week does the masters tend to be?

My MA in History has been 6 hrs a week between September and December and Jan & end of March. I've worked one full day a week with it and it's not been a problem. Your hours don't sound too bad as you'll find that you'll still be able to work in archives during the day for your research for both essays and the dissertation, grab dinner, do anything else you need and then go to work.
Obviously running up to deadlines and the like you'll find working just another thing that you could do without. Although that all depends on what your time management is like and how much sleep you need! The only other problem would be seminar/class scheduling times as I had classes that didn't finish until 5. But again depending on the numbers on that module and tutor's other requirements you might be able to shift it back an hour. Hope this helps
