FVU at DTU

For who?

FVU stands for Forberedende Voksenundervisning (Preparatory Adult Education). FVU Reading at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) is a free supplement to foreign students and employees at DTU who already have some Danish proficiency and would like to become better at reading, writing and spelling. Our FVU courses are developed to help you do better at work, in your studies and in your day-to-day life.

FVU is for everybody above the age of 18 who has a civil registration number and who would like to improve their Danish reading and writing skills.
