Question Description
If students work part-time in Scotland, will the earnings made be enough to pay for tuition fees and living expenses in Scotland?
Answer

Estimated annual living expense for international students in Scotland is around £6250. By doing part-time job for 20 hours a week at rate of £6 per hour you can earn £4320 in 9 months. Remaining 3 months you can do full-time jobs which will be about 40 hours a week. So working 40 hours a week at rate of £6 per hour you’ll earn £2880 in three months. Therefore your total annual income will be £7200. This income will be enough to pay for your living expenses but it will not be enough to pay for your tuition fees.

These are my rough calculations with estimated data. It may not apply to you depending upon some actors like your lifestyle and tuition fee of your institution.
