If you receive unemployment benefits, you can receive an education allowance for a folk high school stay. If you are under 25 years of age, the stay must be part of an education or action plan. The allowance corresponds to half of the unemployment benefit rate. If you are over 25 years of age, it must be part of an action plan, and here the amount corresponds to the maximum unemployment benefit rate.
Talk to your employment office. AF administers the education allowance, which is paid out via the unemployment insurance fund.

If you receive cash benefits because you are unemployed, you can apply to go to folk high school as part of an action plan / activation plan. During the stay, the assistance is provided in accordance with the Act on Active Social Policy.
You can contact your caseworker in the social administration or the employment secretariat in your municipality.
You must be available for the labor market while you are at a folk high school, and the help must be granted before you enroll in a folk high school.

According to the Act on Active Social Policy, support can be provided for folk high school stays as part of a rehabilitation, retraining or an established business plan.
Assistance can be provided for necessary training expenses: school fees, travel home, books and materials, etc. Talk to your caseworker about your possible options.

The state provides special subsidies per. week for young people who do not have a secondary education. This is done through a so-called mentoring scheme, which you can read more about here .

Pause in the study?
– Take the shortcut to motivation

If you are a university student on leave, you have the opportunity to go to the Gymnastikhøjskolen in Ollerup at a reduced price: Kr. 1,295 pr. week. The normal price is Kr. 1,795 pr. week.

Why take a pit stop?
Are you tired of studying or in doubt whether you have chosen the right study?

Has the exam and grade pressure become too great?

A pit stop at Ollerup gives you “peace of mind” and helps you clarify your future. We move you both physically and mentally – without exams and grades. We focus on community and give you time and space to be you.

You are not the only one!
Many students reach a point where the motivation for the study is small or completely gone. Instead of “dropping out”, you can take a high school stay on the pitstop scheme. The pit stop is not a resort, but a shortcut to being clarified and regaining motivation.

Write to Tina …
at or tel. 63 24 64 05

Tell briefly:

  1. who you are
  2. what education you are pursuing
  3. why you need a pit stop at Ollerup

You can only get a stay at a pit stop price if you have interrupted your education immediately before your high school stay.

When you receive an answer, you sign up in the normal way. Just remember to write “pitstop” under comments.
