FVU level examinations

What is an FVU level examination?

You can choose to complete your FVU course by sitting an FVU level examination. You can use FVU Reading Levels 2 and 3 to apply for permanent residence in Denmark and Reading Level 4 to apply for Danish citizenship. In addition, you can use Reading Level 4, if you have also passed Mathematics Level 2 to apply for admission to vocational training programmes.

You register with your teacher for the examination. It is free to sit the examination.


Independent students:

You may sit for a level test as an independent student if you live in one of the following municipalities: Gladsaxe, Lyngby, Gentofte, Rudersdal, Ballerup or Frederiksberg.
