Funding for degree project abroad

To carry out the degree project abroad does not necessarily mean increased costs. Since your degree project is part of your curriculum and you are enrolled at KTH while you carry them out, you have the opportunity to receive student aid equivalent to that of conventional studies. If the degree projects is done within the EU you can apply for Erasmus+ scholarship to cover additional expenses such as travel to and from the place of study. For studies outside of Europe there are other scholarships.

Student finance from CSN

During your degree project, you can still recieve student finance from the Swedish Board of Student Finance, CSN, since you are enrolled and taking credits at KTH. This applies only if you already qualify for student finance. A so-called supplementary loan from CSN can be applied for to cover things such as higher living expenses, travel expenses and tuition fees. Learn more on CSN's website, .
