Study Trips

Study trips are an integral part of the experience at International People’s College and gives you the opportunity to break the daily routines, change perspective, and focus on something entirely different.

During every term a two week period take place, also known as alternative weeks, where yo have the option of either going on a Folk High School study trip or staying on campus if you prefer to experience more of Denmark! Joining the alternative program on campus, you have the choice of participating in an intensive Danish language course, an art project or photoshop course. The three programs take place in the morning and in the afternoon the student body go on excursions, etc. The daily structure of alternative weeks are fundamental different from a normal day at International People’s College (read more about a typical day at IPC here).
