COVID-19 continues to impact us all, and consequently, we must inform you of necessary changes to the beginning of school as a result of the global Corona virus outbreak.
School begins on August 17th for all pre-IB and DP1 students, including students who are already living in Denmark.
To all new international students moving into the dorms
The Danish Ministry of Education asks that all new international students, upon arrival in Denmark, self-quarantine for 14 days before being allowed into school if they arrive from an orange country.
These new regulations impact you, as an international student. To ensure that we uphold the restrictions put in place by the Ministry, the move-in date at the IBG Dorm and Sportstar College Ikast-Brande is now changed to August 3rd 2020 if arriving from an orange country. All new international students coming from countries whose citizens are not yet allowed into Denmark and who will be arriving directly from outside of Denmark, must move into our dormitories on August 3rd 2020 and self-quarantine for 2 weeks.

If you are arriving from a yellow country, we ask that you move in on Friday the 14th of August.
Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with notice of whether we can expect you in the dorms on August 3rd or on the 14th. If you are not moving in on the 3rd, please explain where you will be staying for the 2-week period before the beginning of school. We ask this to ensure that quarantine rules are upheld.
Stay updated on border closures
We ask that you stay updated on Denmark’s border closures throughout the summer. If the bans on certain countries are lifted, it means that you have the option to delay your move-in and avoid quarantine. In that case, please let us know by email before the 3rd of August so we do not wait for your arrival in vain.
Practical information upon arrival
Upon arrival on the 3rd of August, please go directly to the dorm, where we will hand out your keys. Arrival time is between 9.00 and 14.00. Due to the quarantine restrictions, you may not visit the school until the 14th of August, where you may get a bike (deposit dkk 1000) and a locker (deposit 150).
For all students arriving on the 14th, please go to the school and check-in and pay for the bike/ locker, after which you may make your way to the dormitories.

Can I still go to SIRI while self-quarantining?
Yes, you and your parents may go to your SIRI appointment as planned. Make sure to keep your distance to others.
What should I bring to SIRI?
Please see www.nyidanmark.dk for all information regarding required documentation for SIRI. We encourage you to call the SIRI office too.
Our letter of information regarding SIRI is based on prior students’ experiences but we do not take responsibility for any new rules and regulations so please know that it is your responsibility to contact SIRI and be updated on the required documentation for obtaining residence in Denmark.
What documentation should I bring to SIRI if only one of my parents come with me to Denmark?
Please contact www.nyidanmark.dk
Our school is not the official source of information for obtaining permanent residence in Denmark. We try to help but are not necessarily updated on the newest guidelines, rules and regulations!
It is important that you can show to the SIRI officials that your parent consents to your move to Denmark and/or can support you. We suggest that the absent parent signs a notarized letter which could look like this: Notary form residence permit
In addition, you will most likely need to show the authorities a copy of your parents passports, your birth certificate, and a work contract. We recommend notarizing these copies.
However, please CONTACT SIRI DIRECTLY for ensure that you have the most accurate information.
