Problem is I'd need maintenance loans, is there any way I can get them being a citizen in the UK? Norway require you to have proof that you'd be getting a livable income, but don't fund you. Can I get it from my government by any chance? I've never been to Uni before. Also, how does it work?! I'd rather apply directly for Norway, than go to a Uni here.

Can anyone tell me how this all works and if it's even possible? Thanks

As far as I know you can't get maintenance loans from the UK Government if you are studying a full course abroad. Erasmus would be your best option (I'm looking to do something similar but in Spain).

What specifically do you want to study and where? Only non-EU citizens need to show they have enough money to support themselves, if you are British then you don't need to prove anything. You cannot get a maintenance loan from the UK or Norwegian government, nor from Erasmus. You will either need to get a job (which is basically impossible unless you speak Norwegian), or save up money before you go.

But surely if I go to University in the UK and go to Norway through Erasmus I'll be funded by the UK's student finance system? Is this not the case? Swear I heard it was.

When I said you can't get Erasmus funding I meant you can't use Erasmus to fund a whole degree in Norway. You can of course still do an Erasmus year abroad in Norway which you will get funding for. You haven't said what you want to study?

Oh yeah I knew that, Erasmus will have to do for me, if possible for my course choice :-) And it's because I'm still deciding really. I'm thinking Philosophy and Physics or Physics and Maths (combined hons) .
