Everyday life at Ollerup

We have the best everyday life in the world – and we know that because we live in it every single day. When you starts with us, you become part of an active, social and educational environment that revolves around the community we create together. If you would like to form a slightly more concrete impression of everyday life and read more about our folk high school subjects and electives , you are guaranteed to find something you are interested in. You will probably also find something you have not tried before – where you can both get new experiences and time to think about. All subjects are designed to develop, push and enlighten you.

Assemble your high school stay

A folk high school stay at Gymnastikhøjskolen in Ollerup is based on desire and freedom of choice, and you have a great opportunity to control the content of your stay.

Already when registering, you choose the line subject that you follow throughout the semester. It is, together with our compulsory high school subjects, the framework of your stay.

When you arrive and have been introduced to your new home, you must also choose your first electives and sports electives – you choose them both immediately after arrival and again about halfway through the semester. Be aware that the offer varies from semester to semester, and our current selection is just examples of the most common and most often offered electives. More can come, just as more can be put on pause – but it pays off once you’re at school.

You also have the opportunity to choose yourself into a student committee and help make an active difference for your semester. We have a relatively large number of active committees, and we encourage everyone with something on their mind to participate and get involved in the committees. You will receive more information about both the committee and your options for participation at start-up.

Compile your schedule

However, it is important for us to emphasize that desire and freedom of choice go hand in hand with responsibilities and duties. When you choose to go to high school, you also choose to say yes to a lot that you have not directly influenced; you say i.a. yes to a number of established subjects and events, yes to following the legal requirement to participate in the teaching and yes to being part of a committed community.

Below you can get an overview of what everyday life looks like in the form of a weekly schedule.

Be aware that there are different schedules, depending on whether you are going to be a student in a spring or fall semester. For example, in the spring we are so many that we have to divide some of the hours into blocks A and B, and in the autumn you get two different sports electives in each period, which means you can try four different in total.
