Am I really eligible for free Danish lessons?
Yes. This is a service funded by your local municipality. Additionally, at UCplus you are not required to pay for classroom materials.
Will I need to buy course literature?
Not at UCplus. We provide all the materials and literature you require. Furthermore, you will also receive a free tablet during your studies, which you get to keep if you complete the course. We regularly use the tablet in our courses, e.g. by incorporating pictures from your own everyday life into the lessons.
When are lessons held?
At UCplus, classes are divided into small teams, giving you plenty of time to interact with your teacher. We strive to ensure that each lesson is lively and varied and incorporates things, sounds, pictures and texts from your everyday life.
In addition to classroom lectures, UCplus students can also access our online learning portal www.flexidansk.dk anytime and anywhere.
Am I still eligible for free Danish lessons if I have attended another language school?
You are free to choose whichever language school you want. This also means that you can switch to a different language school and continue your Danish course there. You are not allowed to take the same Danish course more than once, however. In other words, if you have completed modules 1, 2 and 3 , you are not able to re-take these modules at a different language school. You can, however, choose to complete modules 4 and 5 at a different language school. The same applies to the ministerial Danish language training programmes 1, 2 and 3.
How do I register?
You can always get in touch with one of our language centres by phone or email. However, we recommend that you visit one of our centres to meet us face to face and discuss your options. This will allow you to get a better idea of what the course entails, determine a schedule that is appropriate for you and sign the necessary registration documents right away.
