A weekly schedule will be composed by main subject classes and a variety of elective subject classes as well as common activities.
As an international student you will also be offered classes in ‘Danish for foreigners’ in which the focus will be on Danish language, society, history, and culture. All other classes will be along with the Danish students and taught in Danish. We give instructions and announcements in English if you need it, and many Danish students understand and speak English very well.
The main subjects at Ry Højskole are Theatre, Music, Art & Design, Outdoor life, and Journalism.
Among the elective subjects are Choir, Kayak and other sports, Drawing, Photo, Cinema, and many more.
Please be aware that participation in the main subject “Verden omkring Os” as well as elective subjects such as Rhetorics, Psychology, Philosophy, etc. will require sufficient language skills in Danish from the beginning.
All students join in the morning singing and awareness class, in the weekly common meeting, and in workshops and lectures with varying content. Most weeks the local community is invited in to join students for a folk high school evening with varying content.
During a course we also have full weeks of study trip or project work. This is when we go to visit another European country or when we are fully absorbed in our main subject.
The school is situated in a Danish small town surrounded by picturesque landscape. Read about the place.
