Application for support for degree studies or individual courses 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.


When you apply for support for programmes of study abroad for the first time, you will need to submit documentation after submitting your application. You can submit documentation via Dine sider at or by regular post.

You will need to submit the following:

  • An unconditional offer from the educational institution.
  • Confirmation from the educational institution showing how much you will have to pay in tuition fees.

If you are already studying abroad and will be continuing your studies, you must have submitted the form for academic progress for the previous academic year.

Joint degree

If you are accepted to a joint degree (a degree en cooperation between two or more universities), that means you will be studying at different universities during your degree. Select the university you are studying at in the semester you are applying for. You only need to send one application.

Apply for loans and grants as soon as you get admission

You can now apply for loans and grants for 2024–2025. 

The application deadline for the academic year 2023–2024 expired on 15 March 2024. If your course started after March 1 2024, you can still apply for grants and loans. The deadline is before the end of the academic year.
