With 25 sports subjects, there is no doubt that sport is an essential part of a year at the Jutland-located ‘efterskole’ (boarding school) BGI Akademiet. The subjects range from the traditional handball and football to more alternative choices including parkour and snowboarding. This does not, however, mean that a stay at the school is only about sports. The school also offers a range of languages and, for the internationally minded students, it is possible to replace the regular Danish curriculum with the Cambridgeapproved IGCSE course. The course is taught in English and thus accessible for both Danish and international students.
