What is a Danish folk college?

Danish folk colleges are a unique concept and part of the non-formal educational system in Denmark. Classes are based on dialogue and mutual learning between teachers and students. The students stay at the college during the course. Living at a folk college is very much about intercultural awareness and personal growth. Students are young young people between 18 and 30 years. The colleges aim to attract students who wish to develop their skill and understanding in their particular field of interest and who also wish to develop personally and become more clear about their future direction.

More about this particular folk college

This folk college is located in the center of Denmark close to the sea and close to the town of Fredericia, a town of about 40.000 inhabitants.

You will be part of the Cultural Base Camp and study alongside Danish students. All classes are conducted in English. On top of all the different subjects, there will be a number of trips to significant places in Denmark.

You will learn why Europe looks the way it does. Learn about architecture from the Gothic, over the Renaissance, Baroque and so on, up to Functionalism and the present day. Ever wondered why “Danish Design” is so famous? We also cover the variety of European food and drink and delve into the area of Danish lifestyle and outdoor life.

And you will get a primer into European paintings, literature, architecture, design and music through the ages as well as the world of film, theater and other media. You will also get the opportunity to take part in some of the activities at our Musical Base Camp line.
