We want to know the specific need from you and match this with the right education and training. The teachers, trainers and intern farms are matched with your specific wishes and there will always be a contact person at each program!

 

To ensure that our teachers have obtained knowledge about your home country and the conditions your agricultural production is subject to, our programs contain possibility of local start and follow up seminars, lecturing or on-farm training! We also emphasize that your outcome is not about copying Danish farming, but about what you can adapt it into at home!
