SKALs International Project Class

SKALs International Project Class

At SKALs International Boarding School we can offer you a year in our International Project Class (SIP). SIP focus on enhancing your professional, personal and social skills alike.

Facts about SKALs International Project Class:

  • International students from abroad as well as Danish students will be attending this class.
  • We speak English.
  • We study subjects such as democracy, globalisation, European identities, EU - federation or confederation, cultural conflicts and international politics.
  • We work with information and communication technology.
  • We expect our students to be able to take responsibility, to cooperate, to collect relevant information and to work thoroughly with this information.
  • We do not have a National Exam. However, the academic year is completed with an internal test of one-week duration.

Project-oriented

SIP does not have an ordinary schedule with normal school subjects such as Mathematics and German. We focus on project-oriented group work, where each student has to take responsibility for his or her own learning. This kind of learning has shown to be very functional and relevant for our modern society and students have to maintain a high level of self-discipline. To learn more about the different projects we work with please visit our website below.

Two teachers are connected to the International Class as facilitators and mediators. The teachers give constructive input and critical remarks to the group and the individual students.

Admission requirements

  • You must have finished your grade 9 when you start at the school.
  • You have to be good at English and also be able to read easily and express yourself in writing in this language.
  • You will take Danish classes, because this is the language of everyday life in the rest of the school - when you are not in the International Class.

At the end of your course, you will receive a certificate in Danish from the National Language Center, Viborg - if you wish so.

SIP has been offered at SKALs for more than a decade, and is ever changing in order to enhance students skills for the future in both the educational system and the labour market.

If you would like to work in English in hands on projects where you study with both Danish and foreign students SIP might just be what you are looking for.

You could see SIP as a transition year where you will be able to develop skills not offered anywhere else.
