A schedule with many options - you decide
We have more than 20 subjects at Vrå Folk High School, which you can choose from.
You decide yourself, if you want to delve into and nerd through a field as e.g. Art – or if you want to make a more diverse schedule, which spreads over different subject fields. Because you are able to assemble your own schedule.
As a start, you should choose subjects so that you have lessons in the morning and afternoon.
- Do you dream of becoming a textile designer, it would make sense for you to choose subjects such as “Fashion”.
- Do you want to become an illustrator or a visual artist, you may choose “Image workshops”,”Visual Arts” or Ceramics.
- Are you hoping to become a journalist and get accepted on Media and Journalist Folk High Schools, then “Media” and “News” may be the relevant combinations to choose.
- If photo is your biggest interest you better choose Analog Photograpy
None of our subjects require special skills. This means that you don’t need to be able to play the guitar or piano in order to choose “music” or unterstand notes in order to choose “electronic music.”
You also don’t need sewing skills in order to choose fashion or know everything about taking pictures in order to choose “Photo.”
The subjects are open for everyone – no matter your skills. However, “DSA – Danish as a second language” applies primarily to foreign students.
At a Folk High School, there is:
- No exams
- No grades
- No fixed curriculum
But we do have compulsory attendance. It is important that you take your lessons seriously. For the sake of yourself and your fellow class mates. It is difficult to play in a band, if the bassist or the drummer don’t show up and it can also be difficult to be ready for an interview, if the photographer doesn’t show up.
That’s why we follow the protocol for all lessons .
On Wednesdays on odd-numbered weeks, there are lectures and events after meals. These events are just like the morning assemblies, meals, kitchen duties, study trips and book club meeting, a part of your stay at the school. So we also expect you to see you there.
We end the school week with a Friday’s Cafe. After that, it will be free for you to choose whether you want to stay at the school or go home or visit someone. There are many trips, events and parties on the weekends.
