Study at a Danish folk high school

If you would like to travel, learn Danish, get to know or reacquaint yourself with a new culture and experience a very unique take on learning, a stay with us might be for you! 

A stay at a Danish folk high school is not only a way to experience new opportunities. It is a uniquely Danish approach to learning and living together in a small community. The philosophy is simple: we believe learning should be motivated by something other than grades, exams and performance. Our school is an exam-free zone, offering you the chance to study Danish language and culture, arts and crafts, international politics, democracy, sports and much more. Our theory of learning means plenty of room to discuss, to develop your skills and discover a new way of thinking.

Who are we?

Rønde Folk High School is a boarding school for young adults aged 18-30. We have room for about 125 students and are happy to welcome international students to our school. As an international student, we aim to teach you the language, culture and ways of Denmark along with many other interesting subjects. You learn through classes – but most importantly by participating in student life along with our Danish students. With us, the extra-curricular activities are equally important to what goes on in the classrooms. And your teachers are right there with you- during evenings, weekends and special events. We are a community and we believe that’s how we learn.
