Pupils at a bible- or art school, may receive loans and grants for up to ten months
You may receive basic support of up to NOK 125,370 for the whole year, and 40 per cent of the loan can be converted to a grant. If you are paying tuition fees, you can receive an extra loan.
All students can receive basic support, and this is what most people call a student loan.
The loan is free of interest for as long as you are receiving loans for full-time education
In order for the loan to be free of interest and instalments, you must be taking a student loan for full-time education. When you no longer receive a student loan or go from full- to part-time studies, interest will accrue on the loan and you must start repayments.
You must have a study place before applying. The final deadline for applying is
- 15 November for the entire year or just the autumn semester
- 15 March for the spring semester
Most applications are processed within 24 hours, but more complex cases can take a long time to process. Before we can transfer the money, your school must let us know that you are going there. Once we have been notified by your school, it may take a few days before you have the money in your account.
