A big step for Esbjerg
Since 2015 Esbjerg Gymnasium offered an international diploma programme (IB). The programme has been created in cooperation between companies in Esbjerg, Esbjerg Municipality, Business Development Esbjerg, Esbjerg International School and Esbjerg Gymnasium & HF.
On a national scale there are more than 200 Danish gymnasiums and only 13 approved IB schools so the new international diploma programme is a prestigious and essential part of Esbjerg’s strategy for growth towards 2020. With the rapid growth in the energy and offshore sector Esbjerg has evolved into an international city with the need of both Danish and international employees.
In Esbjerg, you have the opportunity to go on a special Team Denmark line for young sports talents.
This means that there are flexible conditions for elite athletes, who want to take an academic education.
