Are you interested in meeting young people and learning more
about Danish culture? At Silkeborg Højskole we welcome students
from other countries who would like to study at a typical Danish
folk high school ("højskole").
Our courses take 4, 6 or 10 months. Besides studies in our special Danish language class, you have the opportunity of choosing among some 40 different subjects which may bring you new knowledge, train new skills and challenge your attitudes.

Subjects & themes
We offer five main subjects of which the four first mentioned are very suitable for non Danish-speaking students, whereas the two last mentioned subjects require fluency in Danish:
- Nature and Outdoor life
- Art Class
- Sports and Water sports
We also offer common subjects such as:
- Intercultural learning (in English)
- Social change through art (in English)
And a large variety of optional subjects within:
- Creative workshops
- Music workshops
At Silkeborg Højskole we consider international involvement a
most important issue and via both instruction and social activities
we try to encourage dialogue and understanding between our Danish
students and students coming from different geographical and
cultural backgrounds. You will find it an advantage, if you know
some Danish before you start the course, because most classes and
general information will be given in Danish. During the course,
however, you will get the opportunity to improve your Danish in our
Danish language class.
Please, feel free to write or call us or to send a mail or fax if you have any questions or want to have further information about e.g. financial support, length of courses and conditions in general governing studies at Silkeborg Højskole.
