  • Via Bank transfer - Account No. 4183 12274351

When Lærdansk has registered your payment and has received papers/the reference from the municipality, you will be invited to an interview. During the interview we will find the right level/class for you. One or two weeks later you can start at Lærdansk.

Please note: If you don't have a Danish bank account you must appear in person at Lærdansk to get the money in cash, so make sure to do this before departing Denmark.

Klippekort (Voucher)

From January 2018 access to free Danish education for international employees, students and other independent adults is organised as a ’Klippekort’ (meaning a series of vouchers = ‘klip’)

You can receive teaching for a periode of max 3 ½ years within a timeframe of 5 years. The 5 years periode is activated when you sign up for Danish lesions or no later than 30 days after you have received the letter of reference from the commune.

You have one klip for each module in your Danish education until the Exam in Danish. Each “klip” gives you access to Danish lessons for a fixed period of time per module. The “klippekort” shows the maximum amount of time you can spend on a module. The table below shows the maximum months on each module:

Klip 1: 4 months

Klip 2: 5 months

Klip 3: 7 months

Klip 4: 8 months

Klip 5: 9 months

Klip 6: 9 months

Nevertheless, you will be called in for a test as soon as you are deemed ready, though you might not have used the maximum amount of time. Your teacher will assess when you are ready. Any surplus time can’t be transferred to later modules. Likewise, if you require more time to complete a module, the next klip is automatically activated, thus you will not have enough klip to finish you Danish education.

If you wish to pause your Danish education without wasting a “klip”, you must inform the school. You can inform the school before enrollment, or after you have passed a module test. .

The klips follows planned teaching hence your education time is running whether you attend classes or not.
