Compulsory and upper secondary education

The studies for which one may receive student aid are decided by either the government itself or the appropriate government bureau.

New courses are added and removed continuously and the list below is updated regularly. You will always find the current list of courses that one may receive student aid for in the appendix of the Study Support Ordinance. Unfortunately the Study Support Ordinance is only available in Swedish.
