We all go in a study trip each semester. This means that we travel and experience the world both in the autumn and in the spring. There is no extra payment for the study trip, as it is covered by the tuition fee.

If you cancel the course less than 2 month before the course start, you will get the paid amount returned except for the full registration fee, bank fees and registration fee for Visa, if the Visa application has been started.

For cancellations later than 1 month before the course start, you will furthermore pay for the first 4 weeks of the course.

If stopping during the course – no matter the reason for the stop – payment for the attended weeks at Ungdomshøjskolen ved Ribe plus an extra 4 weeks are paid. Cancellation of the course attendance is registrered from the week where the room key is returned to the school and the room left in correct clean condition.


Folk high school is a committed community

It is important that we all function well together at the højskole. This means that everyone functions in the everyday life, attending the tasks and duties, that comes with living in a large household. This includes cleaning and kitchen duties.
In the same way, it is important that everyone follow the general guidelines of the højskole, concerning respectful behavior and staying quiet during nighttime as well as respecting the rules on smoking, alcohol and drugs. If we find that you cannot be part of the community in an independent, stabile and responsible way, we can choose to stop your stay. If you are signed out due to wrongful behavior, you will not get a refund for the rest of the course.



All students must ensure that they are insured adequately. Some subjects such as sports and outdoor life might require special insurances. The same might apply for the study trip. Please make sure, that your have the required insurances before attending the school.


We look forward to meet you :-)
