Brandbjerg Højskole has a strong and recognized music tradition. Music also plays an important part in Brandbjerg's overall creative environment. We both have an eye for individual musical training and for the team spirit.

Danish language

Being international at Brandbjerg:

Some Folk High Schools have Danish language and culture as a main subject. We don't. We believe that the best way for you to get integrated with the Danish students and the other international students is to be on the same main subjects (Eventlab, Music or Outdoor). At Brandbjerg Højskole Danish culture is mandatory 1,5 hours pr. week, whereas Danish language is optional 3 hours pr. week. 25-30% of the students at Brandbjerg are international, the rest are Danish.
