About Rønde Højskole

Rønde Højskole is part of the non-formal educational system in Denmark. A stay at this kind of school does not offer any official qualifications, like a university degree. It is, however, well esteemed and recognised (by employers and universities) as a course where you will gain many non-forma qualifications such as co-operation skills, tolerance and personal initiative, as well as a useful knowledge of the Danish language and a social network.

Please note that we require a certain level of English for everyday use for our students to benefit from a stay at the school.

All our teaching is based on your interest to learn and your willingness to apply yourself. We have no exams or grades, but at the end of a course you will get a diploma to certify which subjects you have followed. The teaching is based on dialogue and talk – the living word – as our founder Grundtvig introduced it. We offer a wide range of subjects, but our primary goal is to educate our students to have a meaningful life, to celebrate democracy and to find the best way forward in terms of education.

Rønde Højskole is centrally located in Denmark: in Djursland, on the rim of the beautiful hills of Mols, close the bay of Aarhus. In other words, a landscape which gives you rich opportunity to go sightseeing and hiking. Within a distance of 25 km you can reach Aarhus, Denmark’s second largest city. Busses depart every half hour. Within the same distance, you can travel by ferries in Grenaa and Ebeltoft. Aarhus Airport is located about twenty minutes from the school.

An old school dressed in up-to-date clothes, Rønde Højskole is more than 100 years old. In the year of 1897, the school was founded by the church and
a popular movement in the local area. In 1970, the physical space became too small and new buildings were erected. Today, we offer our students modern facilities. The students’ rooms are equipped with toilet, shower and a balcony. On the balcony, you have a splendid view of the countryside. We have up-to-date teaching rooms, laboratories, a music house, auditorium and a gymnasium for sporting activities.
