Aalborg Sportshøjskole was founded in 1982 and stands out from other sports folk high schools by offering its students the chance to leave not just with an experience of a lifetime, but also with a professional sports qualification. “We’re one of the very few folk high schools that offer qualifications all the way from a level one or two course to a full one-year exercise diploma, one of the best qualifications in the world of exercise,” says principal Rasmus Krogh. “That said, most people come mainly because they want to try out new sports or improve within a specific activity, yet the level of our training is very high and, whatever you want to do, we will make sure that you will leave with some skills you didn’t have when you arrived.”
