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.

You can upload documentation via Dine sider at or send the documentation by regular post after applying for support.

You will receive a response or notification of the application’s status within 24 hours.
