Student loans in Sweden

Student grants and student loans in Sweden are administered by the Swedish National Board of Student Aid, a Swedish government agency. Students living with their parents often only take the student grant, while other students tend to take both the student grant and the student loan. A full-time student gets SEK 2,492 (about $370) a month in student grant money, and can borrow up to SEK 4,764 (about $700) a month, which equals a total of SEK 7,259 (about $1,070). During the summer months, the student gets no grants or loans unless taking a summer course. Thus a full-time student gets SEK 24,920 (about $3,700) a year in student grants, and can borrow up to SEK 47,640 (about $7,000) a year, which gives a total of SEK 72,590 (about $10,700). No income tax is paid on student grants and student loans. In Sweden, university studies are free of charge.
