ATTENTION !!!!

  • The voucher will be activated, when you are assigned to a Danish Education and placed in a module – whether or not you attend the class.

  • Once you have passed a module test, you have exhausted the current voucher and you if you still have time left on the current voucher you can’t take this to the next voucher.
  • If you don’t pass the moduletest within the months set for the module/voucher, then you have to start the next voucher. You have then lost a voucher to the next module, and do not have enough voucher to complete the entire Danish education. It’s possible to pay for the remaining vouchers.
  • When a voucher expires, the next clip starts immediately unless you have notified the language center that you want to take a break. However, your 5-year education period still counts.

 

Security deposit
You will be charged 1250 kr if you are in Denmark to study or work, that you will get back when you finish your module.
