Danish Language Programme

Danish Language Programme

Danish Courses at Campus Odense:  

The University of Southern Denmark is a parallel language work place, where both Danish and English are used as working languages. This is why, in cooperation with the language centre ”Lærdansk” (“Learn Danish”), we offer our new international employees a variety of special and customised Danish language courses. The university strongly encourages all international employees to attend the Danish Language Programme. Our courses are publicly financed, but adapted to the needs of university staff.

Please note that you have to sign-up for the Danish Language Programme no later than 14 days after, you have recieved your Danish CPR-number. This means that by the time, you have been to International Citizen Service Center or the Citizen Service Center to Odense Kommune, you need to register within the next 14 days in order to participate in the Danish Language Programme for free.

The aim of the programme is to give you a solid foundation in Danish that will allow you to carry out most of your work-related tasks at SDU. Therefore classes are based on your everyday-life at SDU and will include practical exercises and involve collaboration with your Danish colleagues.

The Danish Language Programme is free of charge for up to 3½ years after arriving in Denmark.
Please note that all course participants must make a deposit of 1.250 DKK. HR Development at SDU will take care of your payment, and you do not need to take further steps in this matter
