Following graduation from Folkeskolen, there are several other educational opportunities, including Gymnasium (academically-oriented upper secondary education), Higher Preparatory Examination (HF) (one year shorter than Gymnasium), Higher Technical Examination Programme (HTX) (with focus on mathematics and engineering), and Higher Commercial Examination Programme (HHX) (with a focus on trade and business), as well as vocational education.
At most institutions of higher education, social life is vital and varied. The students themselves are the driving force behind parties, cafés, excursions and student politics. Fredagsbar, as the Danish name indicates is an open cafe; usually held on Fridays, is very popular among the domestic as well as international student community. Denmark undoubtedly is one of the best country in the world for further education.
