Will Lånekassen pay for my studies in Australia or the UK?


I am a Norwegian student doing the last year in vgs. After graduation I would like to study abroad, preferably in Australia och England. Do you know if Lånekassen will pay for this or do I need to save some money first?

Lånekassen is a very generous system so if you are a Norwegian citizen and study at university level you have a good chance to fund your studies with grants and loans from Lånekassen. If you study on undergraduate (bachelor) level you can currently get up to 349555 NOK per year from Lånekassen. This consists of basic support for living costs of 116369 NOK and up to 233186 NOK for tuition fees. 80143,5 NOK are grants the rest is loans.

In the UK and Australia this should cover all your tuition fees and if your living costs are not too high you could live on the basic support money. However, if you live in an expensive city like London or Sydney you will probably need some extra money since accommodation is expensive there. So it is always good to save up on some money.

Please note that Lånekassen does not support English language courses of Diploma programs so in order to get the grant in the UK or Australia you will need to study at undergraduate level or higher.
