Learning Danish for non-Danish citizens

Non-Danish citizens who move to Denmark are normally entitled to attend Danish courses free of charge. We offer two types of Danish courses: a beginner course oriented towards the labour market and the standard Danish course programme.

Danish for the labour market

If you arrive in Denmark as a non-Danish citizen, are 18 years or older and have not arrived as a refugee or based on family reunification, you are entitled to a Danish course for the labour market free of charge. Please contact the Rudersdal Department of Employment, which will refer you to a language school.

Standard Danish course programme

If you are a refugee or are a new resident based on family reunification, you will automatically be referred to a language school within 1 month of arrival in Rudersdal. You will be offered the standard Danish course programme free of charge.
