About the school

Out in the countryside, close to Ringkøbing fjord and 20 kilometres from the North Sea.

Vestjyllands Højskole is a general creative folk high school with room for 80 students.

The long courses start in January and February and end in June. The fall course begins in August and ends in December. ​​

Over the summer and New Year, we have weekly courses. Our facilities are accessible around the clock: the climbing wall, the outdoor kitchen, the dance hall, the music room, the roundhouse, where you can practice yoga. The kitchen room is where fermentation occurs, and the textile room is where wool, spinning, and sewing are.

We have students from all over the world, but most Danish students on both long and short courses.

At the weekends, there will always be many different activities.

During the year, we have cultural events with artists from outside.

Since 1986, Vestjyllands Højskole has focused on sustainability and green transition. The school is self-sufficient in electricity and heat. Our kitchen uses organic ingredients that we buy locally or grow in our garden.

Højskole life is not only about academics. At Vestjyllands Højskole, there is time for yourself and immersion.
