For admission to the two-year HF programme, students should in principle have completed grade 9 or 10 in Lower Secondary School (Folkeskolen) as well as other requirements.
Students applying directly from grade 10 but who do not satisfy all the requirements for admission will instead be asked to take a centrally set entry examination and attend an interview at the HF centre (usually an Upper Secondary School – Gymnasium). Students who apply later will only be accepted on the basis of a standardised assessment that takes place at the HF centre.
Applications are made digitally on optagelse.dk.
The school and school counsellor will help students in grade 9 or 10 complete their education plans and application forms. The deadline for applications is 1 March and students will receive a written response by 1 June.
Students who have already left school can complete an application form on optagelse.dk. Applications submitted before 15 March, will allow Gymnasiums time to assess the application alongside students who are applying directly from grade 9 or 10.
Students can follow the link Cource guide for HF to find their local HF centre.
