WELCOME TO VESTJYLLANDS FOLK HIGH SCHOOL
First, you probably want to know what a Danish folk high school is.
The Danish folk high schools offer non-formal adult education. Most students are between 18 and 35 years old and the length of a typical stay could be 3 to 8 months. You sleep, eat, study and spend your spare time at the school. There are no academic requirements for admittance and there are no exams - but you will get a diploma as a proof of your attendance.
At Vestjyllands folk high school we want to give you the space, input, classes and energy you need for personal as well as professional development. We are a cultural power plant placed in the beautiful nature by the Fjord of Ringkøbing and nearby the North Sea. It is up to choose between our classes.
Our main subjects are dancing, music, singing, ceramics, painting, theatre, sustainable lifestyle, cooking, writing (author) and outdoor.
We place the emphasis on general, mind-broadening, education and you can choose to dig into one or two main subjects or create a schedule with a broad cultural content. In other words you can kayak one day and dance the next.
Our teachers are all active and passionate professionals within their field of study. Most of our teachers live nearby or on the school and with their families they are using the school as a second home. It gives a very homely and welcoming atmosphere.
Vestjyllands Højskole is the green folk high school of Denmark. Our meals are 90-100% organic, our wind turbine supplies the school with CO2-neutral energy, our solar- and geothermal system keep us warm and our garden inspires students, teachers and the local community to work harder for a sustainable lifestyle.
It is our duty and joy to work for a greener planet.
