About the Danish programme

The Danish Education is divided into three programmes: DU1, DU2 and DU3. Each programme consists of 5-6 modules, and each module completes with a test. The last module completes with an examination (Danish Examination).

Our counsellors determine which programme and module you should attend.

Danish Education 1

DU1 is for students who have had none or very little schooling in their home countries and who are not familiar with the Latin alphabet.

Objectives
You will develop a high enough level of Danish to get by at a Danish workplace and to participate actively in Danish society. You will learn how to handle various every-day situations such as buying groceries, speaking with school or nursery staff, going to the doctor and communicating with your colleagues.
Tuition is mostly verbal, but you will also learn how to write messages, to fill out forms and to read simpler texts.

Modules and exams
DU1 consists of six modules. Each module ends with a test which you will need to pass before you can move on to the next module. DU1 concludes with Danish Exam 1.

Danish Education 2

DU2 is for students with a limited or average degree of schooling from their home country.

Objectives
You will develop a high enough level of Danish to get by at a Danish workplace and to participate actively in Danish society. You will also be able to participate in shorter educational programmes and courses. We will work a lot with verbal language, so you will become very good at speaking and understanding Danish in everyday life. You will also learn to write and read simple texts and messages and you will become quite familiar with Denmark, Danish culture and the Danish labour market.

Modules and exams
DU2 consists of six modules. Each module ends with a test which you will need to pass before you can move on to the next module. DU concludes with Danish Exam 2.

Danish Education 3

DU3 is for students with a higher level of education from their home country. Students on this course should have ample knowledge of at least one other European language and be familiar with grammatical terminology.

Objectives
The objective is for you to be able to get by either on the Danish labour market or in higher education and training.
At DU3, we work with all four linguistic disciplines: Reading, writing, speaking and listening. We also focus on pronunciation and grammar. Initially, we will work mostly with basic subjects stemming from everyday life. As the course progresses, we will begin discussing topical subjects, watching films and reading newspaper articles, etc.

Modules and exams
DU3 consists of five modules. Each module ends with a test which you will need to pass before you can move on to the next module. DU3 concludes after module five with Danish Exam 3.

After Danish Exam 3, you will then be able to seek admission to module six, which you can then conclude with the so-called ‘Studieprøve’ exam. Admission to module six will be contingent upon your grades in Danish Exam 3 and an assessment by our advisors.

Passing the Studieprøve exam will allow you to apply to a range of educational programmes in Denmark.
