Fully Funded International Placements

/ Culture

Magna Vitae are excited to announce a NEW international partnership with International Peoples College (IPC) in Denmark, which allows us to secure fully funded placements from January 2024. This unique and inspiring educational opportunity gives you the chance to gain new skills, nurture your personal growth and find fresh goals in your life.

The International Peoples College is a Danish Folk High School which offers you an experience focused on personal growth, skill development and a fresh focus on your life goals.

Folk High Schools are non-formal residential schools where there are:

  • No exams
  • No fixed curriculum
  • No mandatory classes.

Instead, Teachers at IPC teach subjects that they are passionate about, and the students have the freedom to engage in classes based on their motivation, interests and desires.

The IPC was founded in the wake of World War l by Peter Manniche with the belief that world peace is created through understanding, and that an informed society is essential for a functioning democracy.

At the IPC students from around the world come together to learn how to use their unique skills in the best possible way to support social and economic justice.

The core values that guide life at IPC include:

  1. Peace
  2. Respect & openness
  3. Equality
  4. Democracy
  5. Social Responsibility
  6. Sustainability

Magna Vitae’s mission, as a trust for leisure and culture, is to address social and economic inequality by providing innovative leadership, generating positive change. Our partnership with IPC is based on a shared social purpose.

Magna Vitae and IPC have collaborated to offer fully funded 3-month placements at IPC in January 2024.

These placements cover travel, accommodation, and food expenses. There are no fees or exams associated with this opportunity. So what are you waiting for?
