Danish course for continuing students, registered before July 2018
Those of you who have started taking DU (Dansk Uddannelse) language courses before July 2018 are also subject to the new legislation that introduces the module-fee of 2.000 DKK each time you start a new module after the date of 1st July, 2018. This means that you will start paying immediately after passing a modultest after this date. As with the new students, you also have two options:
Option 1: continue with the DU courses and pay 2.000 DKK/module.
Registration to Prøve i Dansk (final exam) is free of charge if you finish all five DU modules within the allocated time (max. three years and a half from start date).
Option 2: continue with another type of Danish course, namely FVU (forberedende voksenundervisning), which is free of charge for you. FVU Danish is part of the adult education package offered by the Education Ministry to all adults in Denmark. Therefore, the type of FVU language teaching is not only focused on foreigners who want to learn Danish as a foreign language, but to all types of learners.
At the end of the FVU-Danish course, you will have acquired the language skills necessary to pass a Prøve i Dansk.
Registration to Prøve i Dansk: 1.300 DKK.
