What is an “Efterskole”?
The “efterskole” is a unique Danish boarding school, where students from the ages of 14 to 18 can choose to spend time to finish their primary education. We are a self-governing independent institution, and we deal with both the educational and personal development of the students. We embrace a common educational focus on enlightenment for life, general education and democratic citizenship.
International students at Rejsby Europæiske Efterskole
International students from all over the world attend our school. We have had students from the USA, UK, Germany, France, Malawi, Thailand, Australia, Sweden, Russia and several other countries – most of them want to learn more about Denmark and Danish culture. Appart from that, we also offer them an environment where they can be challenged academically and develop themselves socially.
Most of our international students join our International Class and take lessons in Danish as a Second Language. The study program is an excellent opportunity to get to learn the Danish language and more about Danish culture.
Every year we exchange with different schools all over Europe. The theme of the exchanges is “young people meeting young people”. The goal is to widen the students’ perspectives by meeting other Europeans and their culture.
If your school is interested in participating in an exchange or wants to know more about the exchange program, we would like to hear from you.
