College in Denmark

An experience for life

The Academy of Physical Education in Viborg, offers you an experience for life
(in Danish “Viborg Idrætshøjskole” and short: Viborg IH).

A stay here is hard to explain – it is a feeling. Here we will anyway try to explain as much about the school, as we can. But it will exceed your expectations.

Collegestudent in Denmark

You can become a student at Viborg IH, if:

  • you love sport and physical activity - there is room for everyone, beginners as well as experienced
  • you are more than 18 years old when the course begins
  • you can speak and understand English – the classes will take place in Danish and English, but English is second language to all
  • you will be challenged and develope yourself both personally and professionally

The school offers a special atmosphere. We are a small academy with 100-150 students. All students live at the academy, and we have courses both fall and spring.

We have a number of scholarships for international students which are not EU or Nordic citizens.

All students travel for a week!

In September alle the students go to southern France.
The week in southern France will offer lots of great physical experiences, cultural features and perhaps most important: a lot of “social shake-together-time”.
