It is the encounter with young people from other parts of the world that shapes our own national and personal identity - regardless of whether it is young people from the Nordic countries, Europe, USA, Nepal, India or Ghana. So if you are looking for an efterskole with a lot of travels, please take a look further below on this page.
Here you can see which cultural subjects you can choose.
Previous Cultural subjects
Here you can see which Cultural Subjects we have had in the past.
3 periods & 3 travels
The school year is in 3 sections - 2 Profile Subjects and 1 Culture Subject.
At the end of every period, you will go on a travel from 5 - 14 days, depending on the subject. In total, we travel 28 days.
Profile Subject 1
August - October
The students choose their first Profile Subject before they start. You will spend time planning the trip, and learn how to set personal and common goals together in the group. For instance, the divers train for their PADI Open Water certificate, dancers learn choreography, sailers learn sailing and so on. The first Profile Subject trip will be around 7 days.
October - February
The theme for the second period is culture and world citizenship. The Culture Subjects are based on the culture of a country, for instance USA, Nepal, South Peru or China. You will prepare the trip, which is not a vacation at all. You will meet other young people from all over the world and form friendships for life. Typically, the trip is 10-14 days long.
Profile Subject 2
February - May
The third period focuses on personal formation and development by combining both cultural subjects and profile subjects. Students are now experienced in shaping profile subjects and very engaged in creating new subjects. For example, a group of students invented the profile subject Cheerleading and travelled to the USA where they trained with local youngsters. The last trip typically lasts 5-8 days.
