Continuing Adult Education in Denmark
Danish Folk High Schools
The concept of the Danish Folk High School is expressed as "non-formal
adult education" with no exams (prohibited) and no academic requirements for admittance, but characterised by professionalism
and dedication. It is conducted within a collegiate atmosphere, first experienced by its founder N.F.S. Grundvig at Trinity
College, Cambridge. A very wide range of subjects are taught with many in English, including: humanistic subjects and languages;
sports, physical education and gymnastics; arts and creative subjects; media, social science, politics and travel; music,
theatre and dancing; nature, science and health; and food and lifestyle. Included, beyond the academic; film, jazz
music, free-skiing, snow boarding and diving to professional levels are also taught.
