Teachers with non-Danish qualifications

These pages offer guidance for teachers and educators who have qualified outside Denmark.

The following teaching professions are regulated by law in Denmark:

  • Teacher in municipal primary and lower secondary school
  • Teacher in general upper secondary education
  • Pedagogue in municipal primary school (preschool class to grade 3)
  • Teacher of Danish for adult foreigners

That means that you must have your non-Danish qualifications recognised in order to apply for a permanent position. You apply to the Danish Agency for Higher Education and Science, which is an authority under the Ministry of Higher Education and Science.

On the following pages, you can read more about the requirements for having your teaching qualifications recognised or about other types of teaching jobs that are not regulated:
