Fees and funding

As an exchange student from USN, there are a number of funding possibilities one can apply for.


State Educational Loan Fund (Lånekassen)

You can apply for funding through the State Educational Loan Fund (Lånekassen). Lånekassen is a government agency that allocates loans and grants to Norwegian and certain foreign students for their education. 

Remember to read carefully about the different requirements and conditions for support if you are entitled to support. Lånekassen will support you financially also when on exchange. 

If you go on Erasmus+ exchange in Europe, can also receive an Erasmus grant. The grant is given automatically. Students who apply will receive more information directly from the Internationalisation Office at USN. 

If you choose to study in one of the Nordic countries (Nordplus exchange), you may receive a Nordplus grant. Contact the Internationalisation office for further information.
