Livelihood and social assistance of students

You can apply for student financial aid from Kela for studies after basic education. Student financial aid comprises the study grant and state guarantees for a student loan. As a student, you are also entitled to general housing allowance. The number of months for which you may receive a study grant depends on your income.

Students’ health care and income

If you are studying at a university or university of applied sciences, you can use the services of Finnish Student Health Service (FSHS).

Financial aid and social benefits of students with families

When a student becomes a parent, they may either continue or interrupt their studies. Their student financial aid will rise higher.
