Students on Danish Language Course 1, 2 & 3

Danish for continuing students
Danish Language Course 1, 2 and 3

Once you have completed the introductory course Labour Market Oriented Danish, you are usually able to move on to one of the module-based Danish language programmes offered to foreigners by IA Sprog. If you are a refugee or have been part of a family reunification from outside the EU/EEA or Switzerland, your starting point will be Danish Language Course 1, 2 or 3.

An interview with one of our counsellors will help us assess your current level of skill to determine which course to recommend for you and enable us to tailor a program specifically for you. Each time you advance from one level to the next, you will take an exam and receive a certificate to verify your progress.

Danish Language Courses 1, 2 and 3 end with a final exam. Passing the exam allows you to study in Denmark, including university level courses, and to apply for a long-term residence permit or citizenship. You usually have three years to complete these language courses, and the various courses offer access to various opportunities.
