Some students who are not able to fund the cost of full-time study choose to study part-time. Studying part-time allows you to work while you are on your course and it spreads the cost of the course over a longer period. Whilst part-time work can be the most practical option for many students, it is important that you are realistic about how you are going to fit your study in around other commitments.
