SWALS students are entitled to tuition in their mother tongue/dominant language (L1), working on the assumption that the school has or can recruit a duly qualified teacher.

SWALS are students who fall under admission category a.* and whose mother tongue/dominant language is an official language of an EU Member State (with the exception of Irish and Maltese) but for whom no language section in their mother tongue/dominant language exists in the school.

SWALS are normally enrolled in the English or French section. The language of the section is the student’s L2. SWALS can also be enrolled in the Danish language section on condition that no additional costs are incurred. Their L2 should be English, French or German.

* Category a. students are students whose parents work for an EU institution such as the EEA. See the school’s admission criteria.
