Higher Danish Education Exam
Get ready for university

IA Sprog offers language training in preparation for the Higher Danish Education Exam (Studieprøven) for foreign students seeking admission to university level education programmes or students who wish to further improve their Danish after Danish Language Exam 3.


Passing the Higher Danish Education Exam is a prerequisite for being accepted into many university level education programmes in Denmark. The goal of this course is to give you the Danish-language skills you will need to complete this type of programme in Danish. The course’s academic goal is to enable you to reason, evaluate and argue your points at a high level based on a deeper insight into the relevant cultural and community conditions in Denmark.


You will work with authentic contemporary texts that offer relevant knowledge of Danish society. The lessons also include targeted preparation for the Higher Danish Education Exam itself. The exam consists of a test in spoken communication, written communication, and listening.

In order to be admitted to the Higher Danish Education Exam class without an admissions test, you must have passed the Danish Language Exam 3 with grades of at least 10, 10 and 10.
