is offered to every student in Brenderup Højskole. We meet at the beginning of the semester with everyone for clarification of your starting point, needs, expectations, personal qualifications, well-being and dreams. Moreover we will focus on choosing studies or profession. The conversation is rounded off with an action plan.
During your time in the folk high school, the existential guidance and personal development contribute to give you a clarification and the courage to choose a study and / or profession.
At the end of the semester another conversation is offered, that gives the opportunity to round off, follow up and follow to the door.
In addition to personal conversations, we offer joint presentations that provide general knowledge about the labor market and education. We help you with specific application and admission requirements, just as we provide you with assistance in designing an application.
The study guidance is provided by the school's educated mentors and the school's permanent teachers.
If you are a student from Greenland, we also arrange a visit to the Greenlandic House. They offer guidance in Greenlandic on study options and assistance in completing the application form.
