At Nordjyllands Idrætshøjskole you will be part of an international class where you spend around 10 lessons a week. In this class we focus on Danish culture, youth culture, pedagogics, and the special Danish tradition of democracy. We visit typical Danish institutions and visit some of the beautiful attractions in North Jutland. We will be taking part in arranging an international day at the school, where you cook your favorite meals for the Danish students to taste. We also have students from Norway, Sweden, Iceland, Greenland and the Faroe islands.
International students quickly intervene with our Danish students due to the social and educational activities at the school, and the fact that you live so closely together often results in great friendships across cultural backgrounds. Our school works like an adult boarding school, and it is important for us that our students do not only achieve sports skills, but also the ability to develop your social skills.
At Nordjyllands Idrætshøjskole the teachers will be a big part of your everyday life, and they are very passionate about their subjects. This, combined with our great new sports facilities, gives you the best conditions of reaching your goal, whether it is running a marathon or learning the techniques of volleyball.
