Student/Worker…Working Tax Credits?

Hi there, This is probably a really stupid question but I just can't get a straight answer anywhere! I currently work 16 hours a week and receive working tax credits. From September I am hoping to take on a Foundation Degree which is classed as a full time course. However, I still wish to keep working. If I am classed as a full time student, will I still be able to claim working tax credit?! Thank you for your help!! Corrie-Jane
