The world is the main focus for almost all the classes offered at IPC in one way or the other. It can be a regional focus like for example in ‘African Studies‘ or ‘European Studies‘, a cultural focus on the world like in ‘World Cinema‘ or ‘African Drum and Dance‘, or a sustainable and progress oriented focus on the world like for example in ‘Sustainable Gardening‘ or ‘Development Managing‘. Some classes are more general – like ‘Choir‘, ‘Yoga‘, ‘Band-playing‘, ‘Photography‘ ‘Debate Club‘ , ‘Work Out‘ etc., but since students at IPC come from all over the world, there is almost always an international twist to the classes.
During the first week of your term you will be introduced to the classes offered from which you will put together your own schedule. 2-4 classes will be offered in the same time sloth so you will have to choose between them to create your time table. It can be very frustrating if your favourite subjects are on offer at the same time sloth and you like that will have to choose between them, but no matter what you will get the chance to create a time table that interest you. If you are attending a whole term (24 or 18 weeks) you will get the opportunity to change your schedule halfway through and pick new Folk High School classes. Every student must reach a minimum of 28 lessons a week – but trust us, the biggest problem will be which classes NOT to choose.
It is important to notice that classes offered may change from term to term according to the teachers and students at IPC. In general all classes listed underneath will be on offer, but sometimes classes are replaced and therefore you can not totally rely on one certain class as a motivation to come to IPC. You should be interested in IPC as a whole if you apply. Furthermore you need to have basic English language skills to participate in classes etc.
