From Friday, new students with offers of study places from the autumn can apply for loans and scholarships from the Loan Fund.

In the last week, 108,000 students have been offered a study place. That is 8,000 more than last year. The increase may have consequences for applicants, Lånekassen states in a press release.

– “We expect that there may be changes in the number of applicants and what schemes they may be entitled to,” says communications director at Lånekassen, Anette Bjerke.

Full-time students can normally receive 123,519 kroner for the coming academic year. Students with children and students over the age of 30 can receive additional support.

Applicants can expect to receive an answer from the 4th August onwards.
