Academics

We strive to create a framework in which students participate in decision-making, take responsibility for own personalised learning experience and personal development as well as interacting in our community. We believe that in order to prepare and empower our students to the complex and dynamic world, it is a necessity that they live, learn, challenge, experience and push themselves.

It is our responsibility to provide the support and encouragement, to create the safe and trustworthy setting, and facilitate a vision of being able.

This philosophy is particularly apparent in the student’s opportunity to co-create his or her own learning journey from a wide spectrum of both academic and extra-curricular subjects. Academic subjects offered at Ranum Efterskole College include:

IGCSE English 1st & 2nd, German 1st & foreign, French 1st & foreign, Spanish 1st & foreign, Mandarin 1st & foreign, Mathematics, Global Perspectives, Combined Science, Physics, Biology, Chemistry, Business Studies, Physical Education, Drama, Geography, History, Travel & Tourism, & Environmental Management. AS Marine Science. Danish 1st & 2nd (Expats). 9th & 10th grade (National curriculum for Denmark).

Extra curricular

Students are encouraged to maintain a balance between learning and a wide range of extra- curricular subjects and activities, with sporting and cultural achievements valued equally. It is a primary objective to ensure that students develop a healthy and quality-based lifestyle.

The school year is divided into 3 periods; 2 profile periods and 1 culture period. Each period is concluded with a study trip of between 5 to 14 days*year.

Profile subject 1: Aug. – Oct. The purpose of the first period, which is chosen by the student before the school year starts, is to prepare for the first travels. You will learn to set personal goals as well as common goals for the group to achieve. For example, in Scuba diving, we train for a Padi Open Water diving certificate in order to pass the certificate on our travels to the Mediterranean at the end of the period.

Culture subject: Oct. – Feb. In the second period, we focus on culture and world citizenship. All subjectas will focus on a country’s or a continent’s culture e.g. Europe, USA, Nepal, China etc. In each of these subjects, all students are well prepared for their travels. During our travels we meet young locals, live with them and form friendships for life.

Profile subject 2: Mar. – May The third period focuses on personal development and enlightenment, by combining content and purposes from the first and second periods – for example: The dance team travels to Beijing to visit a local school as well as to experience the dance culture in Beijing. By this period the students are experienced in forming new subjects and do so with passion.

”The Danish Efterskole” - The Danish efterskole is an independent, educational and residential institution for students typically aged 14-18, who can choose to spend one, two or three years to finish their upper secondary education. It is in many ways similar to the concept of boarding school, but has rather clear distinctions. The Danish efterskole is based on the idea of combining academic learning with that of general ‘life-learning’ as a preparatory tool for all aspects of life, as well as facilitating an understanding of ‘the individual in a community’.

Solidarity, Community, Unity are key concepts within the Danish efterskole.

“An efterskole cannot be described in words, it must be experienced"

Prospective students are encouraged to apply minimum 10-12 months before the start of the chosen academic year.

All applications to Ranum Efterskole College include a 2.000DKK non-refundable admission fee.

PS: If you’d like to experience what efterskole life is all about before making a final commitment, then join our international summer school with other young people from around the world.
