What is an Evening School?

Evening schools are organized as informal education centers for adults.
FOF København is part of FOF, which is Denmark’s largest provider of adult education with a wide variety of classes and cultural events across the country.

Adult education focuses on lifelong learning with the ambition to learn not only more about ourselves but also the world surrounding us. You learn by choice, not out of obligation. This enables you to delve deeper into the subjects that really interest you.

At FOF København, you gain knowledge and socialize with others who perhaps share same interests as you. The cornerstones of our education programs are personal development, improved quality of life, specialized knowledge, and a better foundation for active participation in society.

Our primary focus is to create high quality experiences. We pride ourselves on having skilled teachers who are excellent communicators, passionate about their subject areas, and who always deliver exceptional professional adult education.

Why attend an Evening School?

At FOF København, you can develop your skills and interests. Learning new things throughout your life is not only healthy for your mind but can also bring great pleasure and a sense of fulfillment into your everyday life.

Whether it’s about adding a new activity to your daily life or diving into a new undiscovered hobby, evening school is also the perfect place to meet new people and expand your network. We bring together people of all ages, genders, and cultural backgrounds. Our students have informed us that attending our classes has led to both gaining new friendships and professional contacts.

Attending evening classes can help you settle in your new community and give you a sense of belonging in your part of town. It can also help you gain insight into Danish culture and society.
