If you are above 30, you may in some cases receive a larger additional loan.
Student with children
Extra loans and grants are in addition to the basic support, which is the loan all students receive. You may thus receive basic support, child grant and additional loan at the same time.
You may receive a child grant for as long as you are a student and are entitled to loans and grants from Lånekassen, up to the year in which the child reaches the age of 16. In the academic year 2023–2024 you can receive this grant if you have a child born in 2008 or later. If both parents are students, both may receive a child grant and additional loan at the same time.
How to apply
There is no separate application for these loans and grants. When you apply for a normal grant and loan, Lånekassen automatically considers whether you may be eligible for a child grant. However, you must choose yourself whether you also want to apply for an additional loan.
