Danish Language Programme

Danish Language Programme

Danish Courses at Campus Odense:  

SDU is a parallel language workplace, 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 or postpone it no later than 30 days after you have received your Danish CPR-number. This means that by the time you have been to the International Citizen Service Center or the Citizen Service Center at Odense Kommune (or the ‘kommune’, where you live in Denmark), you need to register or postpone within the next 30 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.

Course fee:
Odense Kommune will ask you to pay a course fee of 2000 DKK per module. In addition to the course fee you will be asked to pay adeposit of 1250 DKK. This fee is determined by government regulations.

For employees with an employment contract of at least one-year, the cost of Danish education is paid by SDU and will be managed through HR Service, HR Development. You do NOT need to take further action.

You can receive free teaching in our Danish Language Programme for a maximum period of 3.5 years within a timeframe of 5 years from the date of your initial arrival in Denmark. Please note that strict rules apply during these 5 years.
