Copenhagen City Council has allocated 150 million kroner to build a new European school to meet the demand for international education. This will inspire more foreign workers to come to Denmark along with their families.
The new international school in Copenhagen will start accepting students from next summer.
Lars Berg Dueholm, city councilor for the Liberal Alliance (LA) said “We are committed to internationalization and attracting foreign investment. Creating an international public school in Copenhagen is absolutely at the heart of what we would like for the city.”
Copenhagen is also planning to send a application to EU to establish a so-called type-II European school which would offer free tuition for children of EU employees.
New European school will be connected to the already established Sankt Annæ Gymnasium. Both the institutions will be integrated into single new premises in the Carslberg district,Vesterbro by 2017.
Next year the school will be started and will be occupying temporary facilities in the Sydhavn area.
