Attending a Danish Folk High School

At Engelsholm we welcome international students from all over the globe. We believe that mixing Danish and international students makes the school environment flourish, and we enjoy the many perspectives this brings to our discussions about art, music, philosophy, society, politics etc.

Please be aware that the everyday teaching language is Danish, which means you need to be pro-active in order to get the most out of your classes and to grasp information about important details. While the teaching is in Danish, we translate all general messages at assemblies, and on other important occasions, into English. The teachers and students are always very helpful towards international students, but it is important to understand that it is a Danish school and we teach in Danish. As part of curriculum, all international students attend mandatory classes in Danish language and cultural history.
