New rules about Danish education

From July 1st 2017 new rules about free Danish education for adult internationals will be implemented. The new rules will have an impact on some current and future course participants.

No more labor oriented Danish

The course 'Danish for the labor market' has been discontinued as of 1 July 2017. Course participants already enrolled in the course will automatically continue their free Danish education with the courses DU1, DU2 or DU3.

The courses consist of six modules and the school determines which course and module you join.

The classes on DU1, DU2 and DU3 are similiar to 'Danish for the labor market' but on DU1, DU2 and DU3 you must pass a test after each module to continue to the next one. The three Danish educations are furthermore completed with an exam.

Some new course participants must make a deposit

It is still free of charge to learn Danish, but new students must make a DKK 1,250.00 deposit to join a course.

Exempt from deposit are

  • Current students at Lærdansk
  • Refugees and reunited family members
  • Au pairs
