Build your own schedule
Half of the time is allocated to your A subject. The A subjects will fit the season of the long stay. So in the winter half the majority of the teaching will take place indoors and in the summer half we will go out and enjoy the Danish weather.
Danish culture are always guaranteed in all subject periods.
The schedule is indicative, and we reserve the right to make changes.
Mentoring and guidance
If you are under the age of 25 and have no education, you have the option of being admitted to the school as a mentor student. This requires that you, together with your UU supervisor, have drawn up an education plan that includes a stay at a Folk High school.
As a mentor student, we offer you extra guidance in addition to the one described above. You will be assigned to one of our teachers who will help you achieve the goals in the education plan. All the school’s teachers are mentor-trained.
This is where everything is being discussed and illuminated, the meeting between cultures, the small and big challenges of everyday life. Questions are asked about who we are, why we are here and where we are going. This is also where you take the temperature of our community and evaluate it along the way.
You will experience many lectures and we meet many different people who come to disrupt our world view. These can be lecturers from outside, but they can also be the teachers you know from your everyday life at school.
The focus is on flexibility, relaxation and contact with the body. Anyone can participate, as long as you come with an open mind and are willing to participate in the yoga community at the school.
We meet every morning. Sing a song together, listen to a poem, a story or news.
We take a closer look at our own and each other’s cultures. Through creative tasks, music, film, art, play, dance, food and conversation, we delve into the traditions and values that help create us as people. We become more aware of our own identity and which values we want as a basis for our lives. At the same time, our curiosity and respect towards other cultures and ways of living grows.
All students at Brenderup Højskole have a contact person. The purpose is to create a close and safe contact between student and teacher, so that there is always a teacher to go to if challenges arise or you need a good chat. Every week, each contact group meets to discuss a topic or to plan an activity for the whole school.
Discussion group focus on personal development
On Tuesday evenings you have the opportunity to participate in a small discussion group. We would like to give you the opportunity to reflect on yourself, life or the relationships you are in, therefore this discussion group will be led by a teacher. The discussion group meets for an hour every Tuesday evening and there is an opportunity to set your own goals for the future.
The project week gives you the opportunity to work independently on a self-selected topic under the heading of sustainability. The possibilities are many and only you set the limit. You get an insight into the work process from idea phase to project description and to the implementation of the project. During the process, you will be guided by a teacher. We end the week by presenting the projects to each other.
You get good stories and interesting lectures from the school’s teachers. They have exciting things on their minds and are passionate about teaching.
The Folk High school songbook is important to us at Brenderup. We sing every day at the morning assembly. We have singing class every week and the music class often gets the rest of us humming along. The song opens up presence in the community – lyrics and melodies reveal new layers of meaning by using them often.
In team building activities, your ability to work together is put to the test – you become aware of your strengths and gain an insight into where there is still room for development. Your ideas for solving a specific task can often be refined and with the help of the group, the collaboration can move mountains (almost!).
The structure of the subjects
The schedule underneath represent how the subjects is for each week.
When the semester starts, the teachers present the individual subjects and there is an opportunity to ask questions. So you should not make a choice until you are absolutely sure what you are going for.
A subject B subject C subject D subject
We have divided a semester into two subject periods, first and second subject period.
Your A subject takes up four blocks, B takes up two and C and D takes up one block. See the breakdown graphic below.
1. Subject period (first half of the semester)
We make a schedule for the first subject period, where you can choose between two subjects.
Our schedule can change, as the subjects and offer depend on how many students start at the start of the semester and what interests the students have.
2. Subject period (second half of the semester)
Second subject period starts approximately in the middle of the course. Here you have the opportunity to choose the same subjects if you want to immerse yourself even more, or choose completely different subjects, if you want to try as much as possible.
There may also be new exciting B, C and D subjects, depending on what you are interested in.
