The Voucher System expired on July 1st, 2022. Read here, how this may affect you, if you began your Danish Education Programme prior to July 1st, 2022.

If you began your Danish Education Programme prior to July 1st, 2022, and have not used all of your vouchers, you will continue as before.

You must still complete each module according to the rules regarding deposit.

If you’ve already used you vouchers, you are not eligible for further education under the Danish Language Education Programme.

As a self-supporting student you are required to pay a deposit of DKK 2000 at the beginning of your Danish Language Education Programme. The amount will be reimbursed in full upon completion of a module by means of a module test or final examination within the nominated timeframe.

If you do not complete your module within the nominated timeframe, you risk losing your full deposit of DKK 2000 and will be required to pay a new deposit if you wish to start on the subsequent module.

The rules for deposits apply to all language centers, and UCplus administers the deposit on behalf of your municipality. This means UCplus has no authority to make individual rulings when it comes to reimbursing deposits.

Au pairs and family reunification students are exempt from paying a deposit, but your municipality has the final say on whether you are required to pay a deposit, in accordance with Danish law.

*If you wish to receive a full reimbursement, you must pass the module test within the nominated timeframe

How to complete your Danish Language Education with a good result

UCplus wants you to complete your Danish Language Education with a good result and we hope that you are able and willing to put in the extra effort. We highly recommend that you participate actively in class and that you complete the assigned homework. If you are unable to attend class, we kindly ask that you inform us. If you are unable to attend a few classes, your teacher may assign you additional homework.

Please be aware that long periods of non-attendance may result in loss of deposit. If you need a long break, regardless of reason, we highly recommend that you contact our administration, so that we may help you in the best possible way.

We aim to be flexible

If you wish to change your schedule, to a different time or a different day, please contact our administration, and we will attempt to find a class that is better suited for you.

Module test

Each module in the programme concludes with a module test, which may be a written test, an oral test or both. When your teacher thinks you are ready to take the test, you will be given a date for the test. UCplus’ teachers administer the test in accordance with ministerial guidelines.

Summer School lessons are twice a week starting from week 26 or 27:
Morning Tuesday and Thursday (09.00-11.35) or evening Tuesday and Thursday (17.00-19.35)

The lessons take place in our Language Centre at Gyldenløvsgade 11, 1600 Copenhagen V.
You can also participate online via Teams.

You are entitled to the Official Danish Language Education for up to 42 months (3½ years) within a five-year period. The five-year period begins when you arrive in Denmark. You must have a residence permit and permanent, legal residence in Denmark.
