Study Abroad Campus Education - High School Cultural Exchange Programs
- Study Tours


High school students 15-18 years keen to come on a cultural exchange abroad in Denmark soon realise that Denmark is the land of old kings and ancient traditions dating back to the early Vikings, who ruled the lands long ago. Here one will find a diverse culture settled deep within Nordic customs.

Denmark is a beautiful country that not many international students have discovered yet. It is part of the Schengen countries that consist of northern and Western Europe. Also adding to the fact that, Copenhagen, the capital city of Denmark has been steadily climbing up the chart and is now within the top 50 cities in the world.

Education is a key priority in Denmark. The Danish High schooling and education system is high quality.  Experience staying for 5 months semester, 10 month year abroad program while living with a wonderful Danish family.


The Danish school system offers high quality education from the age of 6 to 19. Danish education is characterized by problem-oriented learning methods based mostly on project writing and practical understanding.

High school lasts 2- 3 years, based on the program you choose. Obligatory classes include: classical studies, Danish, English, History, Religious Studies, Math, Physics, P.E. and Social studies. Other classes are chosen according to the direction of study: such as Music and Bio.

Classes are usually taught in 45–55 hour intervals with 5–10 minute breaks in-between. You have different classes each week, but the schema remains constant until new years and summer, where it changes.

Teachers are very nice and informal, but not very personal. Respect isn’t really an issue that is practiced and mentioned, as social comfort and coherency is more important: they don’t really think of it.


Families in Denmark are usually small, with people valuing a close and stable family life. Living with a family in Denmark means you be treated very well and they will ensure that you are having a good time.

When you sit down at the dinner table, you generally don’t begin eating until someone says, Værsgo og spise. That translates to “go ahead and eat.”

The Danes also celebrate several holidays during the year. Some of them are religious holidays and some have  cultural or historical roots. Specific traditions with regard to food, decoration and celebration of the day are connected to most of the holidays, which are usually celebrated with friends and family.

Danish families generally don’t have live-in domestic workers. So, if you’re going to live as part of a Danish family, there will probably be household chores for you, too. If you don’t know how to wash dishes, or clean a floor, or do laundry, have somebody teach you before you leave home.

As a general point of view, young people in Danish families have a lot of independence, but they’re also expected to take on a lot of responsibility. They’re expected to act like young adults instead of big children.

“ Denmark is like a big family of people”
