Hello,

Yes, you can get a tuition fee loan as a part time student up to 6750 at a public university or college or up to 4500 at a private university or college.

The application process is here:

As a part time student, you cannot get a loan for maintenance e.g. books, food, transport etc. Only tuition fees.

Repayment is done through your tax code via HMRC: http://www.slc.co.uk/services/loan-repayment.aspx

Hope this helps
