Grundtvigs Folk High School is one of the oldest Folk High Schools in Denmark. It was founded in 1856. From September to May they offer long courses, where mostly young people between 18 and 25 come to live and study here for 4-5 months. The main subjects are photography, music, radio, art, politics, writing, philosophy, litterature and journalism as well as theatre, film and sports. They normally have students from all over the world; Scandinavia, Europe, USA, Japan and the rest of the world. We require basic Danish language skills from our students. This is because the daily language and the language of our courses is Danish.
