What is an introduction course?

An introduction course is a programme for immigrants, and it can comprise:

  • Labour-market Danish language course

  • Programmes to help employment

The aim of the introduction course is to improve your Danish linguistic skills and knowledge about Danish society with regard to the labour market and education system. You can decide for yourself whether an introduction course is for you.

Programmes to help employment

Programmes to help employment could include work-placement at a company, a job on a wage subsidy, courses on job search and applications, or other programmes to improve your opportunities on the Danish labour market. Note that job-search courses, for example, are in Danish. Not all immigrants are entitled to employment programmes.
