I would say that it would be tight only if you do not mind living like a student but point here is that F/T students usually get discounts in transportation, travel, some shops and they do not need to pay council tax so...and actually you wont get that 15k after deductions for tax (not too much) and social security things (this part counts).
Maybe you may try to ask for some other allowances outside the 15k?
