Courses and topics
At Silkeborg Højskole we offer six main subjects suitable for non Danish-speaking students.
Existential subjects explore different aspects of human life and interaction. We aim for the students to reflect on and gain knowledge of the existential wonders of life. The list of existential subjects is dynamic and updated each semester and may include:
- Intercultural learning (in English)
- Social change through art (in English)
Elective subjects often have a practical, physical or creative scope. You may choose subjects that relate to your main subject or you can go down completely new paths exploring new talents.
The list of elective subjects is dynamic and updated each semester within a wide range of themes such as:
- Creative workshops
- Music workshops
- Pratical skills
- Digital learning
- Outdoor activities
At Silkeborg Højskole international involvement is an important part of our DNA. In both classes and social activities we encourage dialogue and understanding between our Danish students and students from different geographical and cultural backgrounds.
