We offer the Official Danish Language Education programmes (DU1, DU2 and DU3) and FVU Danish courses. The Danish Language Education programmes are the official Danish Language Education programmes offered free of charge to all new residents in Denmark. FVU (Forberedende Voksen Undervisning – Preparatory Adult Education) are free Danish language courses. You must know some Danish already to start on an FVU course. Both the Danish Education programmes and FVU courses are available as online classes and classroom teaching.
You can attend Danish classes at UCplus Dansk day, evening, weekend and 100% online.
We offer classes at 4 locations in Copenhagen and at our language centres in Greve, Skovlunde, Aarhus, Sønderborg Farsø, Ringkøbing and Silkeborg.
The Danish Education and Driver’s Training programme (Dansk- og Chaufføruddannelsen) is only offered in Skovlunde.
We also teach Danish to students, employees and spouses of employees at a number of educational institutions across Denmark.

The Danish Language Education programmes are free of charge with a deposit of DKK 2,000, if you are entitled to Danish Language Education.

When you are registered and active at the Danish Language Education programme at UCplus, you will be offered a free mobile subscription. You are registered, once you have paid the deposit.
FVU courses are free, but you must know some Danish already to take a course.

You sign up for all our courses under each course page. Once we have received your registration, you will be invited to a preliminary consultation with us where we find out your level and which Danish course and class suits you best.
See our Danish courses here.
Both non-course participants and course participants at UCplus can sign up for the Danish exams (Prøve i Dansk 1, 2 and 3), the Danish Citizenship Test (Indfødsretsprøven) and the Active Citizenship Test (Medborgerskabsprøven).
See and sign up for exams and tests here.
Non-course participants must pay a fee and are only registered when payment has been made.
Course participants at UCplus Dansk must be taking one of the final modules in order to register for a Danish exam:
- Danish Language Education 1, module 6: Prøve i dansk 1 (PD1)
- Danish Language Education 2, module 6: Prøve i dansk 2 (PD2)
- Danish Language Education 3, module 5: Prøve i dansk 3 (PD3)
- Danish Language Education 3, module 6: Studieprøven (the final Study Exam)
If you are a non-course participant, you can sign up for a Danish exam regardless of your level.
You will receive a ‘klippekort’ if you are attending a Danish Language Education programme (not FVU courses), and you are a student, an employee, married to an employee, an au pair or have been reunited with your family under EU rules.
A ‘klippekort’ means that you must finish your Danish Language Education programme within a specified period. You get a clip for each module in your Danish Language Education programme.
If you get started quickly on your Danish Language Education programme and follow the lessons, you will normally be able to finish the programme much quicker than the maximum total of 3½ years you have on your ‘klippekort’. But you must be aware of the ‘klippekort’ rules – especially if you are taking a break from your Danish Language Education programme.
Here you can read more about the “klippekort’ rules and see the maximum time you can use to finish each module.
It is very individual how long it takes to learn Danish. It depends on your language background, whether you speak Danish in your day-to-day life and how much time you use on your homework. But we have average times for how long our course participants use to finish the individual modules.
