Weekly schedule

The next long course takes place from the 6th of August to the 16th of December 2017. The weekly schedule consists of approximately 30 lessons. The illustration shows you how these lessons can be compiled from branch specific lessons, common lessons and additional subjects.

Apart from the lessons in the weekly schedule, you get to learn your fellow students better during sports, games and activities in your spare time in the school café, around the fire place in the lobby or in the picturesque surroundings.

During the common lessons you have the unique chance to hear and share ideas with people from all parts of Europe. During morning assemblies students and teachers make presentations of their interests, something they stumbled upon on the internet or something completely different.

The discussions continue in the classrooms and sometimes even over dinner in all kind of vivid languages and methods of expression.

The greatest resource at a folk high school is the students, and on Højskolen Østersøen we have a very broad diversity, as people come from many different places in Europe.

Singing is a very integrated part of the Danish Folk High School. The Folk High School Movement has it’s own songbook, which is used at e.g. morning assemblies.
