List of 13 Best Schools in Denmark (2020 Fees)

In Denmark, education is mandatory for all students between the ages of six to 16 years. The country, along with the Ministry of Children and Education, provides free education to all school-aged children. Parent has the option of homeschooling their children or enrolling them in public schools and private schools.  Generally, students attend the following levels of education:

  • Pre-school
  • Primary
  • Lower secondary
  • Upper Secondary
  • Vocational Education Training (VET)

However, pre-school is not compulsory, but most children from the age of one year attend Early Education and Care Centers (ECEC), which are public and governed by municipalities. Preschool centers include:

  • Crèche (nurseries) and family day-care providers (for children aged 0 to 3 years)
  • Kindergartens (3 to 6 years)
  • Integrated centers (0 to 6 years).

Primary education is compulsory and free in public schools (Folkeskole) in primary and lower secondary levels. After primary school, students proceed to mandatory schooling, which lasts for nine years. Moreover, children aged eight to 10 years can transfer to continuation schools (Efterskole365体育投注平台) such as a private boarding school that offers lower secondary education.

After completing Year 9, students can voluntarily attend Year 10 if they wish. This is particularly important if the learner feels that they are not ready for upper secondary education or if they need more time to choose an upper secondary program.

Once compulsory education is over, students can proceed to upper secondary school or youth education. This level of education is divided into two general categories. First, students can choose from four secondary programs. Each program has a different curriculum, for instance, students can choose between the:

  • Three-year Higher Commercial Examination (HHX)
  • Three-year Upper Secondary School Leaving Examination (STX)
  • Higher Technical Examination (HTX) programs.

365体育投注平台The second category involves a vocational program, which is diverse and consists of a dual-program, i.e., classroom period alternating with on-the-job training. Secondary education takes about two to four years, but it’s not compulsory.
