Our Values

Experience-based learning

 

The old and outdated idea that the teacher is the main figure in the classroom does not suit the society of tomorrow. Therefore at DNS, the students are together with the teacher in the centre of their education. Learning is happening constantly, through a hands-on, activity-based programme. We learn by doing, working together and by exploring the different realities of people.

Global Perspective

Acquiring the knowledge, being aware of what is going on in the world, does not only mean to read books, articles or watch documentaries. It also means to travel, to talk with people from different countries and to face at close range the different realities that people live in. We explore the Global reality already in the first year by a 4 month bus travel to Western Africa as a study project.

Collectivity

At our campus in Denmark we live, work, and study collectively. The students and teachers run the college together – we make decisions by consensus democracy. We have a rich cultural life with over 20 different nationalities sharing wisdom and experiences. Hence our programme is much more than just a bachelor in education. Above all, It is a school of life.

Hear from our Graduates

Ermes from Italy

“This education is much more than becoming a teacher. It is an education for life. I didn’t even wish to become a teacher before joining. But i gained another perspective of a what a teacher is and can do.”

Marina from Spain

“When I was about to graduate I was confused about what to do. Some wondered if it was because there were no options, but it was because I could think of 1000 options and I knew all of them were real options.”

Ausrine from Lithuania

“DNS was a turning point in my life. I learned about myself, the world and most importantly how to work in a team. My teammates will remain close friends for the rest of my life.”

Elo from Estonia

“I constantly use the things I learned at DNS. The studies are really political, so it gives a much better perspective of how the world works and brings you much closer to what we should teach the kids in school”

Louise from Denmark

“DNS taught me that a teacher is not just a conveyer of knowledge, being a teacher means supporting people to learn, to grow and constantly challenge yourself and others. I use this lesson every day regardless if I am in classroom”

Milo from Italy

Louise from Denmark

At DNS I learned how to bring my ideas and visions to life – both as an individual and as part of a community. I don’t think about WHAT is possible, but HOW I can make it possible. It’s just one of the things DNS taught me, but it is one of the skills that really define my life.

Milo from Italy

“DNS taught me that a teacher is not just a conveyer of knowledge, being a teacher means supporting people to learn, to grow and constantly challenge yourself and others. I use this lesson every day regardless of if I am in a classroom”
