Reviews about "DNS International Teacher Training College"

      Another type of education

4 months ago by Inês

DNS is a place of people to people that educate them selves through daily experiences, traveling, study and most important, learning by doing! Did you ever felt that you could always push your potential more and more? As more you do, more you want to do! So don't stop that potential, enjoy the pratical experience and the life cynergy between so different people! Unschool yourself and live! Loads of sun and rain!

      Alternative society

4 months ago by Anonymous

I always felt lost in the society where no one cares for each other and rather cares about their own belly buttons. And than I found DNS International Teacher Training College located in Tvind School Center. Well, the lifestyle of the community is definitely not for everyone. I have seem many people quitting and leaving unable to find themselves here. Though, in my opinion - they just refused to do so. To be honest, I have never seen a DNS College graduate who would complain about his/her education or regret ever taking it. Those, who left on the way have a lot of negative things to say, of course - it is a natural phenomenon in society. Coming back to the community here in Tvind School Campus and its alternative society. Only those with open minds and heart are able able to take the challenge of flourishing and developing here. Only brave and strong can submit to the call of self-driven growth. Think twice before coming here if you are not ready for the above (;

      Think twice before joining this college. Great concept, but in reality a very moderate school.

I have spent some time at this college and I will tell you why it is not all as great as it seems. First of all, DNS is a very small private college. A lot of people have joined the college over the past years, but not many have actually finished the program. I estimate about 60 percent of the students who did enroll in the past 5 years quit within the first year. There are many reasons why people quit. I believe it has something to do with some following facts. The quality of the education is very poor. The teachers are students who have completed the program before and are often occupied with other tasks besides teaching. They give the impression that the students have a lot of influence on the program. The reality is that the teachers decide everything. Another disadvantage of DNS is that the degree is not recognized by the Danish government. The bachelor degree is from a cooperating university in Mozambique. That means all the oral exams are with teachers from this university through Skype. When you want to work at a school in Western countries, you will have to do an additional education depending on your level. In DNS people have very little privacy and time for themselves. You are expected to work/study during the weekends and evenings. There are many events and meetings you have to attend. There are also a lot of side projects going on all the time. They call it 'managing the school'. There's often work to be done which has nothing to do with the education you paid for. When you would have a day off, you are still in the community, 4 kilometers from the nearest village. You can't use a car for private stuff and there is not much to do within biking distance. Normally, you are allowed to have a vacation of 12 days, two times a year. The traveling time is included in these 12 days. DNS has a unique way to fund their college. Students have to save up the school fees before and during the program with jobs provided by DNS and connected organizations. These jobs do not meet the Danish standards. Often students are getting underpaid. They work way too many hours. And they do work they are not qualified for such as working with mentally disabled people and people with psychological problems. Students are sometimes exposed to aggressive people and situations who require educated pedagogues. The costs for the first year are about €8000. If you are paying the money at the beginning of the study you can enroll in September and start the program immediately. There is also a €1000 enrollment fee which you have to pay when you arrive at the college. In reality, 90% of the students decide to join the ‘’saving up period’’. You can save up the €8000 with a job if you join the college 12 to 6 months before the program starts. That’s also the moment when you have to pay the enrollment fee. You don’t get this money back when you decide to leave the college before the program starts. You mainly work during this period and you are not considered a student of the college. The saving up period offers a solution to the students from relative poor European countries. The majority of the DNS students are from countries as Hungary, Lithuania, Czech Republic, Latvia, and Italy. DNS students have a common economy. All the money earned by students goes to an account controlled by the teachers. There is little to no insight into how this money is used. Students get a very small amount of pocket money each month. DNS is an essential part of Tvind, a confederation of private schools, humanitarian organizations, and businesses. Tvind is very infamous in Denmark. They have been accused of fraud and money laundering. They have branches all over the world. They have offices in the tax paradises such as the Cayman Islands, British Virgin Islands, and Switzerland. A lot of different media have done research or have been reporting about Tvind. Before joining DNS, you should be aware of what kind of organization you are dealing with. In my opinion, these are the facts you should know about DNS if you consider joining this college.
