How much can I receive?
When you are an adult, you receive basic support
Basic support is what most people call a student loan, and which all students are entitled to. As an apprentice without statutory rights as a young person you may receive basic support of up to NOK 128,887 for the entire year, if you are a full-time apprentice.
Your loan will be based on your percentage of full-time equivalent
If you work part-time as an apprentice, your loan will be reduced.
The loan is interest-free for as long as you are receiving grants and loans for full-time education
You must start to repay the loan when you no longer receive grants and loans for full-time education. The loan is interest free for as long as you receive educational support for full-time studies.
You receive payments for 11 months
Apprentices receive loans for 11 months of the year. You may receive a grant from August to June, but you must still remember to apply every year.
