FVU Danish Courses

FVU stands for ‘Forberedende voksenundervisning’ (Preparatory Adult Education) and is a free offer for those who want to become better at reading and writing Danish.

UCplus Dansk offers three FVU Danish courses:

FVU start – a preparatory course for the FVU reading course. The course is aimed at foreigners with basic Danish skills and the focus is on oral language skills.

FVU reading – a course divided into four steps. For each step, you will become better at reading and writing. Each step concludes with a step test before you move on to the next step.

FVU mathematics – a course divided into two steps. For each step, you will become better at working with everyday situations involving figures.

Other FVU courses:

FVU English – a course for those who want to become better at speaking, reading and writing in English, e.g. in connection with their work.

FVU digital – a course for those who want to become more familiar with the digital platforms in Denmark and at work.

Structure

The FVU courses are divided into steps and each is concluded with a test before you move on to the following step.

Why FVU Danish courses?

At FVU, we focus on the texts that are important to you. In most workplaces and educational institutions you need be able to read, write and understand texts in Danish. The texts that you meet in your day-to-day life are precisely the texts we use on our FVU courses.

Completed FVU courses may, for example, be used to:

  • Apply for a permanent residence permit in Denmark with FVU reading steps 2 and 3. 
  • Apply for Danish citizenship with FVU reading step 4. 
  • Combine FVU reading step 4 with FVU mathematics step 2 to apply for admission to a vocational education programme.
Where and when?

You can take FVU courses at UCplus’ Language Centres in Copenhagen, Skovlunde, Greve and Farsø.

We have classes consisting of a combination of online teaching and classroom teaching day or evening (blended learning). 

You can also take FVU courses 100% online.

You make your choice after your preliminary consultation.

Who can take FVU courses?
