    I'm applying to universities in Sweden starting in Autumn next year and I was wondering how to go about applying for a loan for this?

    The Swedish finance system only really loans to Swedish citizen and I was wondering if I still apply for a loan in the same way I would if I was going to university within the UK? If not, how do I go about this and how do loans work when doing a full university course abroad?

    Hi sophhhhhhhh,


    Any student intending to study all or the majority of their course abroad will not receive any undergraduate funding from Student Finance England or Student Finance Wales or a Postgraduate Loan for a postgraduate course.

    If the course is wholly delivered at a campus abroad, the course will not be designated.

    Where a student attends a course abroad for a full or partial year as part of their course in the UK, they can still apply for funding for their study year abroad.

    If a postgraduate loan student is studying at a UK institution that runs on conjunction with another institution outside the UK they may still be eligible for a Postgraduate Loan. There is certain eligibility criteria that would need to be met.

    Thanks Rona
