All children receive free education in Danish primary and lower secondary schools.

Free, compulsory education

Children in Denmark must receive 10 years of compulsory education starting in August in the year in which they turn six years old.


Alternatives such as private independent schools and residential continuation schools, where parents have to pay school fees, exist as well. It is also possible to teach your child at home, but very few people choose this option.
