I am currently doing an undergraduate degree in Belgium, my home country, which is financed largely by the state. We do not have any student loans here, the bulk of fees has always been paid by the government.
I would love to go to Manchester in 2015 to study another related degree which is not offered in Belgium. I read somewhere that Student Finance England only financially supports your first degree, but does this rule apply even if they did not have anything to do with my Belgian degree?
The Manchester course seems to be beyond ideal for me, but I simply can't wrap my mind around the fact that they expect anyone to come up with £9000 per year. We are considered middle class here, but £9000 is about the amount on my savings account.
Kind regards, Vincent

Student finance does indeed only fund students for their first degree, regardless if a degree was gained in another country.
