It is a secure and inexpensive way to finance your living expenses while you study. You are eligible for a student loan if you study full time. Since the government guarantees the student loan, no other security or guarantee is required. You can easily submit a loan application online.

General about student loan

  • Student loans are state-guaranteed and must be repaid when the studies are completed.
  • The student loan can be 300– 650 euros a month according to the decision on student financial aid. If you study abroad, the loan may amount to 800 euros a month.
  • The state guarantee is in force for 30 years at the most from the first drawdown of the loan.
  • The reference rate options are Nordea Prime and the 12-month Euribor. The bank’s margin is added on top of the reference rate.
  • When you have a valid decision on a state guarantee, you can make a student loan application and partial drawdown requests in Netbank.
  • As of the academic year 2011–2012, the state guarantee for student loans is granted without a separate application to all university students receiving a student grant.
  • Kela will pay a portion of your student loan as student loan compensation if you have started your first higher education studies on 1 August 2014 or later and you have passed your degree within the target time.

Studying abroad

  • If you study abroad, the loan may amount to 800 euros a month.
