3. Falling ill during your studies?

In case you would fall seriously ill and have to be on sick leave, you should apply for the sickness allowance instead of the student financial aid. If you apply for the sickness allowance you have to be unable to study.

If you fall ill, contact the FSHS and ask a doctor’s certificate for your illness. If your studies slow down due to illness, you can apply for a maximum of 9 additional months of student financial aid.

Kela support also your rehabilitation from sickness. That means that if Kela pays you the sickness allowance, you can still complete your studies which helps you to rehabilitate from sickness and to continue your studies.

Note! The benefits from Kela are available only Finnish students and foreigners comparable to Finnish citizens!
