An experience for life


Would you like to take a break, travel the world, and learn about a different culture?

Do you want to develop professional and personally?
The Academy of Physical Education in Viborg, GIV (from the Danish name Gymnastik og Idrætshøjskolen ved Viborg) offers you an experience for life. 
GIV is hard to explain – it is a feeling. Here we will anyway try to explain as much about the school, as we can. But it will exceed your expectations. 
You can become a student at GIV, if:
  • you love sport and physical activity (you don't have to be good at any sport, or have been very physical active)
  • you are more than 18 years old
  • you can speak and understand English - the classes will take place in Danish and English, but English is second language to all
  • you will be challenged and develope yourself both personally and professionally
GIV offers a special atmosphere. We are a small academy with 80-120 students. All students live at the academy, and we have courses both fall and spring (18 weeks each).
Living abroad is not just about making new friends and collecting new pictures. It is to feel that your intentions are changing, to change ideas, to put into practice, to be open minded, to accept challenges.

We have a number of scholarships for international students.
