Welcome to Egå Ungdoms-Højskole (Egaa Youth Folk High School), which is open to both Danish and foreign students between the full ages of 16 1/2 and not yet 19 the day a course starts. We would be happy if you chose to spend one or two semesters with us – and we will do our best to provide you with a fantastic stay.

We admit young people from all over the world. Regardless of your nationality, you have the opportunity to get an experience of a lifetime here at EUH along with other young people – Danes as well as those of other nationalities. We often have students with dual citizenship.
It is our objective for you as a student to develop socially and personally as well as improve your readiness for further vocational education. Our school is not a traditional education but offers a very good alternative. Being here will help you mature and figure out what you would like from your future. Our experience also tells us that you will both develop and gain a higher degree of consciousness about your own competencies. 
We will do our best to ensure you an unforgettable time here at Egaa Youth Folk High School.



Egå Youth Folk High School is possibly the best located high school in Denmark! You will be close to the beach, the city, and picturesque nature. The high school is situated a few kilometres from Aarhus, which is the second-largest city in Denmark, offering you a wealth of opportunities as a student. In the area you can rent a bicycle and enjoy the ride between the forest and sea towards the city. Moreover, busses depart every 15 minutes only a few hundred meters from the school. That way you are always close to the beating heart of the city. We arrange trips to Aarhus, for instance in connection with the Aarhus Festival. Additionally, you are of course welcome to explore the city on your own – or along with your new friends.


The beach at Egå is one the best in Denmark, allowing you to swim, surf or, simply enjoy the fresh air. You can quickly and safely reach the beach in Egå via a tunnel just a few minutes walk from the school. That way you are never far from a refreshing swim or walk through nature with a view of Mols Bjerge and the harbour in Aarhus.
