How many loans you can get
There is a limit to how many Student Loans you can get in your lifetime.
Usually, you can only get enough Student Loans to pay for up to 7 EFTS of study. This includes all loans you got since 2010.
7 EFTS is:
- around 840 points/credits, or
- about 7 or 8 years of full-time study.
If you haven't studied 7 EFTS yet and you want to do another course or paper that will take you over the 7 EFTS limit, you may be able to get another Student Loan for this course or paper.
You've studied 6.5 EFTS and have enrolled for another course which is 1 EFT. Although this takes you over the 7 EFTS limit to 7.5 EFTS, you may be able to get another Student Loan for this course.
