Funding Information for Scandinavian & Nordic Students

Funding provided by Scandinavian and Nordic governments

Sweden

Swedish students have the right to apply for student finance if they wish to complete part or the whole of their studies in another country. In order for student finance to be granted, the higher education institution overseas must be recognised by Centrala studiestödsnämnden or CSN (Swedish National Board of Student Aid).

The amount of the student loan may vary according to the study destination. However, the repayment terms are the same as for studying in Sweden. Additional finance is available for tuition fees, insurance and travel expenses.

Denmark

Students from Denmark can obtain State Educational Support (Statens Uddannelsesstøtte) for study programmes outside of the country. In order to get the SU student grant for education abroad, you must be a Danish citizen and must have been resident in Denmark for a period of at least 2 consecutive years within the last 10 years prior to applying for the grant.

However, recent EU court decisions have meant that the SU Law is subject to modification. This means that the 2-year rule in relation to being resident in Denmark may be eased.

Norway

Norwegian students can depend on financial support from The Norwegian State Educational Loan Fund, administered by Lanekassen, which provides student loans and stipends for higher education.

Met Film School is on the list of UK Higher Education providers recognised by Lanekassen.

Finland

Financial aid for a course of study that is conducted outside Finland is avail­able for Finnish citizens. Financial aid is also available for citizens of other EU/EEA countries or Switzerland and their family members.

Students seeking financial aid must have had a municipality of residence in Finland for at least 2 years out of the 5 years preceding the commencement of their studies and their stay abroad must be temporary. In other words, students will not qualify if they have lived abroad for more than 3 years before starting their studies.

Iceland

The Icelandic Student Loan Fund (Icelandic: Lánasjóður íslenskra námsmanna or LÍN) is a government-funded and government-run student loan fund for Icelandic citizens. It provides loans for living expenses of up to 7 years of university studies. Repayment of the loans is at below-market-rate interest, with a two-year grace period upon completion of studies.

Courses of study qualify for loans if an educational institution offers them as full-time studies; 60 ECTS units of study in each academic year or at least 30 ECTS units each semester in cases where the course structure does not cover a complete academic year.
