In order to be accepted for the three-year course for the technical school-leaving examination (htx), you normally need to have passed the primary school-leaving examination after year 10 (class 9) as well as fulfilling a number of other conditions. Alternatively, you may be asked to pass a centrally-issued entrance examination and take part in an application interview carried out by the school.
The application is made digitally and you apply via optagelse.dk.
If you are in year 10 or 11 (class 9 or 10), your school and your mentor will help you complete your education plan and apply for acceptance. The deadline for the application is 1 March, and you will be informed in writing by 1 June whether you have been accepted.
If you have left school, you can fill out an application yourself at optagelse.dk. If you apply before 15 March, the schools will be able to consider your application together with the applications from the pupils applying directly from years 10 or 11, classes 9 or 10.
