I'd take the opportunity. If it gets too much, you can always try and find help in someway. But honestly, you have no idea what you're capable of until you try it. I bet before you had your son (the ASD son that is), you thought you couldn't handle a high needs child. And yet now, look at you go! Rocking the shit outta this whole parenting thing, even with an autistic child "in the mix". I say go for it!
If you have even the slightest inkling that you may regret not taking it in the future, take it and give it a go.
I would do it and just make it work. Uni's have crèches now to assist if you have to go to lectures. Make sure you use some of your earnings on a cleaner and a nanny a few hours a week so you can go to a library to study. Even if you don't save much whilst you study it would be better to spend the money to help you get through it comfortably rather than not do it at all.
Definitely go for it! If you don't you'll always wonder and regret it. If you can't handle it, admit defeat and ask for help! Good luck x
