Q: Is IPC a private or public institution?
A: IPC is an independent, non-profit foundation and is free of any set political, religious or sectarian ideology. (See the Values questions in this FAQ.) We are government subsidized on the basis of the number of students at the school. Read more about the Folk High Schools here or consult this diagram for an outline of our organizational structure.
Q: It is called the International People’s College, but are you a formal College?
A: No! We are not a regular College, nor are we a University or a High School for that matter. The International People’s College belongs to a unique group of Danish Schools known as Folk High Schools, which has a long distinquished history and tradition of excellent non-formal adult education.

Q: Will I get a certificate from IPC, and what can I use it for?
A: Yes, you will receive a certificate, documenting the courses and activities you have completed during your stay at IPC. What you can use it for is an entirely different matter. You cannot use the certificate to achieve credits at a University as we do not offer exams at IPC nor do we supply ECTS certified curriculums.
Q: What are IPC’s Core Values?
A: We have six Core Values at IPC and you can read all about them here.
