Living in Denmark

We will teach you Danish – and help you find housing, scools for your childen and work for your expats.

Language teaching

In collaboration with your department, the Human Resources Department will plan a language programme to enable you to speak and understand Danish within a short period. Some teaching sessions will be intensive individual teaching, while others will be in teams with other foreigners.


There are several ways to live in Denmark. You can rent a home for shorter or longer periods – you can also buy a home. There are many different types of housing in Denmark.

The Human Resources Department will be happy to help you, and perhaps your family, to find a home.

Children of all ages

If you have children, there are different possibilities depending on the age of the children. In Denmark there is childcare from the age of six months. Your children can be cared for at a daycare centre or at a private home. When your children are between three and six years of age, they can attend a kindergarten. Your child can start pre-school when he/she is five.

In Odense, it is possible to attend an international school. If you are bringing children who are to attend upper secondary school, you can enrol them at the International Baccalaureate at Nyborg Gymnasium, about 30 km from Odense, see link below.

The Human Resources Department will help enrol your children in the relevant institution.
