Rønde Højskole

Would you like to study in Denmark for 18 or 23 weeks and learn the language?Then here’s your chance!

Special funds allows us to invite young people aged 18-30 from the new EU countries to visit Denmark and stay at Rønde Højskole, a Danish Folk High School. All tuition fees and living costs are included in a very favorable offer, which involves scholarships from the school as well as the Danish Agency for International Education, formerly known as Cirius.

The Folk High School is a Danish phenomenon. Basically, students spend four or six months studying something which is of a particular interest to them. It is a boarding school, which means living together with many other young students from Denmark and elsewhere.

At Rønde Folk High School, we aim to give you an understanding of democracy and the Danish culture, and we offer European students lessons in the Danish language each week. Apart from that, the classes include indoor and outdoor sports, design, music, choir pottery class, arts and painting, Danish Society and Culture and International politics. You put together your own schedule based on your interests.

Rønde Folk High School is situated in the beautiful town of Rønde, close to Denmark’s second largest city, Aarhus. The school is close to the sea and surrounded by beautiful forests and characteristic hills.

Former student at Rønde folk High School, Ina Zubaite, Lithuania:

“I have got many new skills and have improved the old ones. Just imagine: You join the class without any idea how to make something, and you come out with something which you’ve made yourself. It’s an unbelievable feeling. I have made a lot of new friends and I know I'll be very sad to leave them all. I feel that I've become stronger and I am sure that it will help me in the future."

If you are interested in taking advantage of this great opportunity, please do not hesitate to contact the school. Call European Students Co-ordinator Ejvind Johansen or Birgitte Rokkjær at 0045 8637 1955 or send them an email at

Ejvind and Birgitte are happy to guide you through the application process and help you out with all practical information.
