Education is much more than A-B-C and 1-2-3. Children need to run, play, jump. They have to make friends and explore the world around them. They need experiences that help them to grow and unfold their potential.

Education is also a great way to meet new people, to grow as a person and become both what and who you want to be. It is a place to make friends, learn about culture and prepare for the future.

In Fredericia we have room for creativity in our daycare and schools. We believe that children need challenges in a safe environment, in order to grow. Fredericia is also the perfect place for higher education, with easy transportation to Denmark's biggest universities.

Universities in Denmark

Five Danish universities made it to the QS World University Rankings of 2017, attesting to the high quality of education in Denmark. For students from the EU, tuition is free, to those outside of the EU fees are certainly not extravagantly high.

Though most of the courses are taught in Danish, there is still a large selection of English, German, Arabic and even Spanish programs to be found.
