Get free Danish lessons with a public language school

On July 1st. the Danish Education programme at a public language school became free. This means that you no longer have to pay the user fee of DKK 2,000 per module for Danish lessons.


Free Danish lessons are only offered at language schools that have an agreements with municipalities, and therefor are able to offer the certified official Danish Education programme.




If you choose a public language school instead of a private language school, you can be enrolled at the Danish Education for free. The only thing you have do to is to pay a deposit of DKK 2,000. The full deposit is being reimbursed when you complete the modules with a test within a specified timeframe or when you take the final exam. However, your attendance can also have an impact on the reimbursement of the deposit, but this is the municipality that can make that decision.


Free exam and module tests

If you sign up for Danish courses at a public language school you will, besides free Danish courses, also receive free module tests and free Danish exam. If you on the other hand are a private student, then you have to pay  a fee for your exam. In addition, you also don’t know the teacher you are going to the exam with.
