You are entitled to attend a Danish language programme for up to 42 months, equivalent to 3½ years, within a 5 years maximum time period.
You must pay a deposit and module fees, and you will receive a voucher to attend a Danish programme.
If newly arrived in Denmark, you will receive a letter (in your online digital e-Boks) from the local municipality. This happens within the first month of your registration. The letter explains your right to attend Danish education within a period of 5 years, counting from the date of the letter.
It is important that you contact us within 30 days of receiving the letter from the municipality.
The 42 months period begins when you receive the letter. Therefore, if you do not start Danish classes right away, you should be careful to postpone your start.
