How do I get a voucher?
New work, new people, new surroundings ... Danish courses may not be among your top priorities when you’re just getting settled into your new life in Denmark.
But if you want to keep the right to free Danish classes while in Denmark, you have to make a pretty quick decision about when you expect to start learning Danish.
A short time after receiving your CPR number, your home municipality will send a letter to your digital inbox (e-Boks). This letter contains information about your right to free Danish language classes. As soon as you get that letter, the clock starts ticking on your right to 3.5 years of Danish classes within a period of 5 years.
Within four weeks of receiving this letter, you have to contact a language school and make an agreement about when you’ll start your Danish classes.
If you don’t want to (or can’t) start taking Danish classes right away, you can postpone the starting date. We’ve added a new form to our website for doing this – all you have to do is let us know when you expect to start taking Danish classes.
If you’re ready to start learning Danish right away, you don’t even have to wait for the letter from your home municipality. You can register for Danish classes as soon as you’ve received your CPR number.
REMEMBER! Make sure to contact a language school within four weeks, or your voucher will be automatically activated and units will be deducted even if you don’t sign up for Danish classes. And if that happens, you may not have enough units left to finish your Danish studies free of charge.
