Application for support for exchange programmes in the Nordic region

This is what are you applying for

In the application you apply for basic support and an eventual additional loan for school fees. You may choose to apply for only the part of the basic support that can be converted to a grant, or the entire loan.

The application also applies to other grants and loans that only certain groups are entitled to. These are child grant, additional loan and refugee grant.

There are separate applications for parental grant and additional grant due to disability.


We usually collect information about the exchange stay electronically when you apply for support, but you may still be required to submit documentation in some cases.

If you are paying tuition fees to the foreign university, you must document the amount you are paying.

Cannot travel to the campus abroad due to the coronavirus pandemic?

Please be aware of exceptions to the rules that apply in this situation. This is how you should respond if you get these questions in the application:

Will you be staying at the place of study and attend lectures at the academic institution? You must answer Yes.

Do you live in the same house or apartment as one or both of your parents during the academic year? You must answer No.

Will you be taking the degree/course exclusively online? You must answer No.

You should respond this way because the rules have been changed temporarily due to the coronavirus pandemic. The requirement of attending lectures on campus does not apply if an education that is normally campus-based is offered online or session-based in the autumn of 2021 and the spring of 2022 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Usually, only students who live away from their parents may receive a grant. You are still entitled to a grant if you live temporarily with your parents due to the coronavirus pandemic.
