What is a “klippekort”?

You will get a “klippekort” if you attend Danish Education (not FVU), and you are a student, an employee, married to someone working in Denmark, working as an au pair or reunited with family in accordance with EU regulations.

A “klippekort” implies that you must complete your Danish Education within a certain period. You will have one klip (a unit) for each module of your Danish Education. A “Klippekort” consist of units (klip). E indicates for how long you can attend each module, and how much time you have to complete your Danish Education.

If you make sure to attend classes and do your homework, you will most likely be able to complete your Danish Education much sooner and well in advance of the maximum of 3 ½ years which is the total length of time on your “klippekort”. Nevertheless, you need to be aware of the terms and conditions relating to the “klippekort” – especially if you put your Danish Education on hold for a period.

Here, you can read more about the rules concerning the “Klippekort”.
