A stay at Krogerup Folk High School
At Krogerup Folk High School you will get the chance to learn and grow with other students and to experience a whole other way of life from the humdrum of the everyday. Krogerup is all about letting creativity flow. Free from exams you are able to work without restraint. You have an opportunity to learn new sides to yourself by letting energy and commitment guide you – to go places where you’ve never been before. You take the time to realize your potential and socialize with others. In the process, you will connect with and touch base with the unknown and the unexpected.
There are 6 main subjects at Krogerup. The first five – Journalism & Media; Photography; Pulse of the City; The World is Burning and Film!Film!Film! – are in Danish.
The sixth course – Crossing Borders – is our international course. Crossing Borders consists of students from all over the world and the working language is English. But don’t worry: You will have plenty of opportunity to hang out with students from the other courses and maybe even pick up a phrase or two in Danish.

Depending on how long you stay, you will choose a number of electives to supplement your main subject. It can be anything from photography to yoga, and all electives open to the Crossing Borders students will be held in English. The electives are divided into blocks A and B – that are on offer before the study tour – and C (and D in the spring course) – on offer after the study tour.

There are many activities happening in and around Krogerup throughout your stay, so you will have plenty of chances to mingle and to get to know your fellow students – weekend parties, discussion clubs, curling up next to the fireplace or going on an impulse outing to the nearby art museum. On Mondays there is choir night. Tuesdays are devoted to Krogerup Café where we invite a cultural or political figure to give a presentation or concert.
