Vestjyllands Højskole

Vestjyllands Højskole is a cultural folk highschool with focus on creative subjects and sustainability.

About the school

Here you can spend between 3 and 5 months improving your skills in dance, music, painting, ceramics and sustainability. You can fill your schedule with one of the subjects, or you can make a mix of more of them.

As a student you have to choose 21 lessons per week. On top of that there are 7 compulsory lessons a week. The compulsory lessons include morning assemblies, day trips to the local area, theatre plays, concerts and lectures. The 7 compulsory lessons give all students and teachers a common ground to interact and understand each other.

Our teachers mainly work on the school, but they are often invited to participate in professional projects elsewhere. They have been nominated to and/or received prizes of theatre, dance, literature and design. They have released CDs, staged theater plays, made exhibitions or published books. So for sure you will get stimulated in the creative field.
