Application for support for individual courses outside of the Nordic region

This is what you are applying for

In the application, you apply for basic support, travel support and any additional loans for tuition fees. You can choose to apply for grants only and would receive only the grant element of the tuition fee and travel support, as well as the part of the basic support that can be converted to a grant

The application also applies to other support that only certain groups are entitled to. This includes child grants, additional loans, language grants, refugee grants and grants for facilitated engineering and economics programmes of education in France and Germany.

There are separate applications for parental grants and additional grants due to disability.


You need to enclose a final letter of admission from the educational institution showing which subjects you will be studying together with your application. The number of credits/ECTS per subject and the level at which the subjects are taught must also be shown in the letter of admission.

In countries where each study programme has to be approved (for example France and Spain), the documentation must also show the degree courses from which the subjects you will be studying have been taken.

You must also submit documentation showing how much you will pay in tuition fees and that you have achieved general study competence in Norway.

Cannot travel to the campus abroad due to the coronavirus pandemic?

Please be aware of exceptions to the rules that apply in this situation. This is how you should respond if you get these questions in the application:

Will you be staying at the place of study and attend lectures at the academic institution? You must answer Yes.

Do you live in the same house or apartment as one or both of your parents during the academic year? You must answer No.

Will you be taking the degree/course exclusively online? You must answer No.

You should respond this way because the rules have been changed temporarily due to the coronavirus pandemic. The requirement of attending lectures on campus does not apply if an education that is normally campus-based is offered online or session-based in the autumn of 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Usually, only students who live away from their parents may receive a grant. You are still entitled to a grant if you live temporarily with your parents due to the coronavirus pandemic.
