You decide what you want to learn, from the available classes

You can combine subjects to form your own schedule. When you arrive at Vrå Folk High School, we will present each subject in detail during the first week.

Some subjects might seem very intangible from their description, but make much more sense when you try it out. You will choose subjects during the first week at the school.

Besides the class you see here, there are also community classes for all students for 2 modules every week.
