Tuition fees of DKK 750-1,400 (Sk3,400-6,300) a week include accommodation and food. Scholarships are up to DKK600 weekly. Candidates must be at least 17 1/2 years old and permanent residents of Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Lithuania, Latvia, Malta, Poland, Slovakia or Slovenia. The period of study can vary from 12 weeks to one year.
