More about Summer School in Copenhagen

Summerschool - EN (4)

All self-supporting citizens (employees, beneficiaries of unemployment benefits, students, accompanying spouses, EU/EEA citizens or au pairs) are eligible for a Danish Language Education Programme offered by the municipality of Copenhagen.

You must complete your Danish Language Education within the time limit granted by Danish law – a total of 3 ½ years in a five-year period.

Once you enroll, you will receive vouchers corresponding to the number of modules you need to complete your Danish course.

Each voucher is valid for a limited number of months and may affect the total amount of time you are given to complete your Danish Language Education. If you do not finish a module within the nominated timeframe, the next voucher will be activated.

This means that you must pay attention to the timeframe of each voucher. In between modules or after passing a module test, it is possible for you to suspend or pause your voucher. We urge you to speak with your teacher or our administration if you intend to take a break from Danish class, so that we may help you make the best decision.

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 and activation of new vouchers. 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 in week 27, 28, 29 30 and 31:
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 Zoom.
