FAQ

What types of Danish lessons do you offer?

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 to all foreigners 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.

When do the Danish classes take place?

You can see all our class times in UCplus Booking. If you attend one of the educational institutions where we teach, the Danish lessons follow after your ordinary classes.

Where do we teach?

We offer classes in two places in Copenhagen (Nørregade 31 and Drejervej 15) and at our language centres in Greve, Skovlunde and Farsø.

The Danish Education and Driver’s Training programme (Dansk- og Chaufføruddannelsen) is only offered in Skovlunde. We also teach students, employees and spouses of employees at a number of educational institutions across Denmark. See all language centres here.

How much does it cost?

An Official Danish Language Education programme costs DKK 2,000 per module. All three Danish Language Education programmes are divided into six modules, but on Danish Language Education 3 you take the exam (PD3) after module 5. FVU courses are free, but you must know some Danish already to take a course.

A new Act will come into effect on July 1st, 2020. This means that the Danish Language Education programmes will become free of charge with a deposit of DKK 2,000. You can get started with free Danish lessons at UCplus now. Classes at UCplus are 100% online until after June 8th, where classroom teaching is again possible.

You have to pay DKK 2000 to attend Danish lessons and after July 1st, 2020, when you begin the Official Danish Language Education, you will get your money back when you pass your module test or finish with the final Danish test.

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.

How do I sign up for Danish lessons?

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 which class is right for you.

How do I register for an exam?

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 the exams and tests here. Non-course participants must pay a fee and are only registered when payment has been made.

Who can register for a Danish exam?

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.

What is a ‘klippekort’?
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.

How long does it take to learn Danish?

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.
