What is a Higher Education Examination Course?
A Higher Education Examination Course is module 6 of the Danish Language 3 course. The course focuses on working with the language at a very high level.
Academic skills training
We deal with relevant cultural and social issues, for example the developments in education and the legal system, politics and the climate but also topical subjects, such as use of mobiles, the ‘Me Too’ movement, etc. We will teach you academic skills, enabling you to argue a point and put it into perspective, both orally and in writing, using nuanced and correct Danish. You will learn to write an academic essay and present a topic at an academic level.
