Are there international schools in Copenhagen?

In Denmark there are English, French and German international schools; most of them are private elementary schools.

There is one public international school in Copenhagen: the European School Copenhagen.

You can contact the international schools for more information on enrolment procedures. Some schools are very popular and have waiting lists.

Non-Danish speaking children

Children whose first language is not Danish are offered training in Danish as a second language in primary and lower secondary schools. The pre-school year also offers language stimulation training for bilingual children.

Language stimulation is mandatory for children who need it. This is assessed by local municipal authorities.

Local municipalities can provide information about finding a tutor, who can help the child with language and other subjects.
