The danish folk high school

Being at a danish folk high school is an experience of a lifetime. 

At Brenderup Højskole you can meet young people from all over the world. The teaching is based on this difference – or similarity if you will. Your life, your interests seen in the eyes of others. It shifts your prejudices, gives you a new perspective and personal competencies that follow you for the rest of your life.

We work with sustainable and creative subjects every day. At the school we live together. We eat and do projects together. We go on trips together, discuss everyday life and our lifestyle, inhale culture, party and get tired together.

Our teaching takes place in both Danish and English.


Life changing. The best thing I’ve ever done and will hopefully do again. Amazing team of people creating such an amazing experience.

Spent the best semester at Brenderup Højskole with the nicest people – still look back on the time as the best six months of my life.

Through my course I have become comfortable with the miter saw and the angle grinder, have learned to grow a multitude of plants and compost, have built three tiny houses + a duck house, have found stress relief through hard training with our soldier instructor, and much more. But most of all, I have had a new start in life through a close community, where I have gotten to know so many good people from all over the world.

The most amazing thing about Brenderup is the diversity. I met a world that had room for us all. And the place is also a place with meaning. For example, they have built a straw house which is the setting for many of the experiences we had. Lovely food and people who believe that we are helping to create a world.
