International Schools
in Denmark


There are many international schools in Denmark where teaching is carried out in either English, French or German, while still teaching Danish as a mandatory subject.

The International Schools in Denmark are located throughout Denmark, tho most are found close to Copenhagen. The schools are open to all international students but also cater to Danish children who wish to have a more international style of education.

For the expat the decision to enroll their child in one of the international schools in Denmark or a Danish school can be a dilemna.

A. For many it is easier to enroll in an international school that teaches in the child's native tongue. The student will also be taught Danish as part of the curriculum, yet the environment will be more international than Danish.

B. The Danish schools will offer the student the chance to assimilate into Danish society and culture quicker, make Danish friends and learn the language quicker too. Since the Danish schools will teach in Danish the student will be forced to learn more Danish. That is not to say that english is not spoken and Danish schools work well with foreign students, helping them with special Danish classes and all sorts of assistance.

Some of the deciding factors will be where you live, how long will you be staying in Denmark, the age of the child attending school and cost. The costs of tuition for an international school starts around 20,000 DKR per year and can go as high as 100,000. This will vary from school to school, but that is only a general guideline. Check with the schools for exact prices and and possible discounts for families with more than one child attending.

There may be a waiting list for some international schools, so plan early if relocating to Denmark to check with the school for availability and reserve a spot early.

If you can not get into one of the International Schools in Denmark or the cost is prohibitive, you may wish to contact your local kommune about getting a tutor, who can help your child with languange and other subjects. These tutors will teach your child in their native tongue, so that they can learn easier and quicker.

One thing about the Danish education system is that there is a lot of options for everyone, regardless of age, nationality or language spoken.

List of International Schools in Denmark

I have divided the International Schools in Denmark into the following categories: English, German and French speaking schools.

I do not know of any other international schools, but there may be some. If looking for other languages, you may wish to contact one these schools for guidance.

You can also read more about the education system aside from the international schools in Denmark here.

English International Schools

Below is a list of the English international schools in Denmark including kindergarten and schools.

The most popular international schools are CIS, HIS and Rygaards, which may be due to their close proximity to Copenhagen and the large expat community which resides there.
