Danish education programmes

​Foreign employees have a right to receive Danish language tuition.​​

As a foreign employee you are offered the opportunity to receive instruction in Danish at a language school in the municipality where you live. Tuition is free, but a few municipalities request a fee for every module. The fee constitutes approx. DKK 500.

Various Danish education programmes and modules​​

There are three Danish courses – DU1, DU2, and DU3. All Danish education programmes are divided into modules. You must pass a module in order to continue to the next module. DU3 is for highly educated people and consists of five modules. The course ends in an exam.

Job interview in Danish​

Most hospitals expect you to be able to carry out a job interview in Danish. You should be able to do so by the end of DU3 or if you have attained a level of proficiency in Danish that is equivalent to the European standard B1/B2.
