Reason no. 1: Youth Municipality 2017

In 2017, the Municipality of Sonderborg was elected as the Youth Municipality of the year by DUF. The reason for awarding Sonderborg with the title was:

” … that young people get to be a part of the decision-making and take responsibility. This is shown very explicitly through the yearly 1 million Danish kr. that the young people have the responsibility to divide equally. In addition to this, the municipality has a broad selection of culture- and leisure time activities; they are focused in their work towards integrating and engaging young people from both countryside and city. Furthermore, Sonderborg takes full advantage of being a border city. Because of this – and much more – they have earned the title as ”Youth Municipality of the year 2017”.”

In Sonderborg, you can get your voice heard through both the youth council and Sønderborg Student Foundation (SSF).

Reason nr. 2: Educate yourself from ABC to Ph.D.

In the area of Sonderborg, you can educate yourself within almost any field. We have good kindergartens, schools and many opportunities in regards to secondary and vocational schools and universities.

Reason nr. 3: You will not be bored

Not only is the Sonderborg area filled with associations within any field of interest, but we also have an area teeming with lots of exciting events and initiatives for young people, ensuring an exciting study environment.

You can, for example, take a look in Alsion’s student café, visit Mejeriet or explore the various networks for young people.
