How much money can a student receive?

Student aid consists of grants and loans and is calculated per week. The student decides whether to seek only grants or grants and loans. The total amount a student receives depends on how many weeks of study each semester or academic year consists of and if the studies are full-time or part-time.

Predetermined number of weeks for some countries

CSN has predetermined the number of weeks of study for some countries. Those countries are Australia, Denmark, Greece, Italy, Canada, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Spain, the United Kingdom, Germany, USA and Austria.

Predetermined number of weeks

We have only predetermined fixed weeks for a few countries and only for courses at college or university level, following the regular academic year of the country. For studies in other countries and other studies (e.g. upper secondary level, language courses or summer courses), we always estimate the study period based on the number of weeks of study.

Example: A student studies two semesters in the United States. CSN has determined the study period to 2 x 17 weeks. The student may receive 3,034 SEK x 17 weeks per semester, i.e. 51,578 SEK per semester and 103,153 SEK for a year.

Loans for additional costs

Students studying abroad can also apply for additional loans for:

  • tuition fees
  • travel costs
  • personal insurance
  • other costs directly related to the studies.

Loans for tuition fees

We grant loans for compulsory fees associated with studies, for example, costs for enrollment, courses, examinations and access to library and computer.

We do not grant additional loans for the following costs:

  • accommodation and food
  • fees for student unions
  • textbooks
  • consumables and study equipment
  • periods of study without fees, for example internship periods.

There is a maximum amount for tuition fees for all years of studies. Once the maximum amount is reached, it is not possible to borrow any more for tuition fees. There is a ceiling for studies at secondary level and another for studies at post-secondary level.

For courses shorter than 13 weeks, there is limited ability to take loans for tuition fees.
