Few things to remember, It is very difficult to get work permit in UK. Most of the universities are not good do the background check before selecting any university or college. You can do part time job but as per labour laws in UK it is limited to few hours I think max you can work for 4 hours a day if you are holding student visa and most of the organisation dont entertain part time job. The key to get a good job in UK is work permit.

From my past experience, MSc doesn't do much in the computer field.

It will be quite difficult to get a part-time IT job in UK as a student.

Have you checked if you qualify for an HSMP visa ?

There isnt much value in pursuing an MS in UK, unless you try to one of the premier institutions
