You must provide the school with a copy of your school diploma with grades of the relevant subjects. This is a prerequisite for your admission.

As a large part of the education involves working with machines and tractors, it is necessary to have a driver’s license. If you don’t have a driver’s license when you start your education, a tractor driver’s license will be a compulsory part of your teaching.

You need to bring a valid passport with at least 6 months left before expiration. This is important in order to obtain your residency in Denmark.

You will need to bring a computer/laptop; this is a prerequisite for your education.

E-learning and written assignments are an essential part of our teaching and you will be working with your computer on a daily basis. As a student at Kalø you will have access to Microsoft Office 365 among other services.

The college will lend out all the books needed for your study. When you finish your course all books must be returned to the office, otherwise you will be charged for them. It is possible to buy some of the books if wanted.

There is wireless internet access at the college, free of charge for all the students.

There is a bus stop right by the school and there are buses going to Aarhus (55 min) and Ebeltoft (20 min) on an hourly basis. Bus no. 123 to Aarhus stops in Rønde where there are supermarkets, a pharmacy and shops for everyday needs.

We strongly recommend getting a Danish personal accident insurance and a home content insurance for the duration of your stay at the school. There are Danish websites that specialise in finding the cheapest insurance for you.

Students are covered by the school’s injury insurance in certain circumstances. It covers you if an injury occurs in connection with “teaching under workplace conditions”. That is, when you work / receive teaching at one of the school’s workshops or laboratories. If damage arises due to inappropriate behaviour or by unregulated use of machines or tools, the school’s insurance does not cover. In such cases, your own insurance should cover.

On study trips abroad, the school provides a travel insurance for all participants.

In all other teaching, transport, excursion and break situations, in case of theft, etc. you are not covered by the school’s insurance, but by your own insurance. The school encourages you to have a valid home, travel, liability and accident insurance.

Students are welcome to participate in the school council and help share fellow students’ ideas, interests and concerns with the teachers. It is an extracurricular activity and presents a great opportunity to be part of the school’s development.
