About the school
Grundtvigs Folk High School is a modern boarding school situated in Hilleroed 35 km north of Copenhagen. It is one of the oldest Folk High Schools in Denmark - founded i 1856.
From August to May we offer long courses, where mostly young people between 18 and 25 come to live and study here for 2 to 8 months.
We usually have students from all over the world; Scandinavia, Europe, USA, Japan and the rest of the world. We require basic Danish language skills from our students. This is because the daily language and the language of our courses is Danish. We have between 70 and 100 students on our long courses.
The fee for being a student at Grundtvigs starts at 1580 DKK a week - approximately 210 Euro. The price includes a room, meals and education. If you are a citizen from one of the 10 new EU-countries, the Danish Government can support your stay at a Danish Folk High School. If you come from a Nordic country, the Nordic Council will support your stay. Please contact us for more information on financial support.
During the summer we have courses of a weeks duration with specific themes e.g. philosophy, choir or art. The language is Danish.
