FAQ

Do you have any questions regarding the Minority Changemaker Programme? Maybe you can find some answers here. 

  • Is the programme still happening despite the Covid-19 pandemic?

    It is now certain that we can't go through with it in 2021, unfortunately but have to postpone it to March 27-June 24, 2022. We are very disappointed about that and sorry for all who have been looking forward to participating this year.

    Due to the Corona situation it will be irresponsible and not possible to carry out now ot the coming months. The Corona restrictions are especially strict in the area in Germany where the school is placed because of a high amount of infected persons and the prospect of improvement isn’t near. This means for instance that schools are not allowed to open for students yet.

     We had high hopes that things would change for the better but instead it became worse.

    All of us have looked forward to meeting each other at the Jaruplund højskole to inspirational get together and it is really a pity not to be able to.

    Instead we invite online meetings until summer and a "Minority Lab" in autumn open to all with an interest in this:

    • From 2 o’clock PM/14.00 the April 21st and seven Wednesdays more you are invited to join online meetings arranged by Jaruplund højskole called “A taste of MCP”. This will be gatherings in the style of Folk high school meetings, with professional presentations of subjects from among others one of the teachers from Southern Denmark University, followed by debates in smaller groups. The subjects will be some of those that you would have found on the course.

    More information will be found on MCP pages on Facebook and you can get the link from project manager Maria Strøm: ms@graenseforeningen.dk

    • In week 40 (October 4-10, 2021) we’ll have a Minority Lab on Jaruplund højskole where it will be possible to stay for some days or the whole week. Here you’ll find further introduction to the MCP topics and debates on what is important to focus on as well as singing and having a nice time together with a broad variety of activities.
  • Is the programme at BA or MA level?

    You can take the course both at BA and MA level. As a BA student you get 15 ECTS for completing the programme, and as an MA student you get 10 ECTS.

  • How is the credit transferred to my home university?

    If you pass the course, you will get a certificate from the SDU, that you can show your home university as prove to get the credit transfer.

    NB: It is your Home University that decides if you can get merit for participating in our programme, instead of taking regular courses at you home university. You should talk to them about the possibility of getting merit before you enter the programme.

  • What is the average age of the participants?

    Mainly between 18-30 (33) years.

  • Have you got enough attenders for your nice programme?

    We’ve got a fine group of people on the list of participants but would like some more to attend the course.

  • Could I take my guitar with me?

    Yes, please do so! As much live music as possible would be wonderful!

  • I don't know if it is easier to come from Hamburg or Copenhagen to reach your school?

    It will be easier to come from Hamburg.

  • Will Roskilde Festival take place and with us as participants?

    They are in the same situation as the rest uf us, hoping to succeed in finding a solution to make it happen again this year with tests/vaccines/? The answer is that they don’t’know yet. If it takes place we expect to join as planned together with other groups of young people from Grænseforeningen.

  • Can I join the programme even though I am not a european citizen?

    No, unfortunately only european citizens can join the programme. This is a requirement for us to receive funding for the programme.

  • Are there kitchen facilities that the students can use?

    Yes, there is a small kitchen with basic appliances that you can use during the stay. All meals are included in the price of the programme though.

  • Is it possible to come by car and park at the Højskole?

    Yes, it is possible to park for free at the school.

  • I can't find any transportation so that I can arrive on the 27th of March. Is it possible to arrive on a different date?

    Yes, you are welcome to arrive on the 26th of March in stead, when it is not possible the 27th.

  • Will other activities take place now that MCP is postponed?

    We'll invite all registered participants to eight online meetings and in October to a Minority Lab. It will also be open to others with an interest in the subjects and in this way of meeting:

    • From 2 o’clock PM/14.00 the April 21st and seven Wednesdays more you are invited to join online meetings arranged by Jaruplund højskole called “A taste of MCP”. This will be gatherings in the style of Folk high school meetings, with professional presentations of subjects from among others one of the teachers from Southern Denmark University, followed by debates in smaller groups.
