Study Environment

Study Environment

A good study environment is a priority at Business Academy Southwest, and this is true not only when it comes to our classes, but also when it comes to your spare time. This is why we have the most satisfied students in Denmark – for six years running.

You have a close relationship with our tutors. We have classrooms of 20-30 students, in which the education takes place. This enables us to answer any questions you might have, about anything that you are uncertain about.

Often our teaching is a combination of short presentations from the tutor and assignments. Many of our tutors also make use of what is called the flipped classroom, which means that you stay at home and watch a video with a presentation from the tutor. Later on there will be discussion of the covered topic in the classroom.

When you are not in the classroom, you can easily find somewhere at our academy where you can work together with the other students.

Canteen

Our canteen is called Café Healthy Study and offers breakfast, lunch or a bite to eat if you are feeling just a little bit hungry.

Friday Bar

Our bar is open on Thursdays and Fridays and is a nice place to relax in the afternoon. You can play table tennis, pool, table football or beer pong. The bar is also where the Academy’s parties take place, and, if your class comes up with a good idea for an event, you are welcome to talk to the staff in the bar. The bar is run by students who volunteer for the job – maybe you would like to get involved?

Follow what goes on in the bar at Facebook.

Your spare time

You will never get bored in Esbjerg. No matter if you like sports, music, shopping, culture or nature, there are lots of things that you can do.

A good study environment is a priority at Business Academy Southwest, and this is true not only when it comes to our classes, but also when it comes to your spare time.

You have a close relationship with our tutors. Teaching takes place in our new classrooms in Alsion with a view of Alssund and 20-30 students in the room.  The close proximity in which you work enables our tutors to answer any questions you might have, whenever there is anything which you are unsure about. Often our teaching is a combination of short presentations from the tutor and assignments. Many of our tutors also make use of what is called the flipped classroom, which means that you stay at home and watch a video with a presentation from the tutor. Later on there will be discussion of the covered topic in the classroom.

Our tutors make use of cross-disciplinary projects in collaboration with other courses. This means that our students get as close to reality as possible.

Canteen

The refectory/canteen at Alsion is open to everybody, and you can use your student ID card to get discounts for breakfast and lunch and when you are just a little bit hungry. There is a morning buffet until 10.15 with bread and breakfast rolls. There is a lunch buffet every day with warm courses and rye bread, etc. You can also buy fresh sandwiches, coffee and something for your sweet tooth.

 

Your spare time

There is are plenty of activities to keep yourself entertained with when you are not studying. Sonderborg town offers a lot of entertaining and study-relevant activities. Sonderborg has many cafés and is a bustling place. You will also find lots of sports clubs with special discounts for students who like to be active in their spare time. Sonderborg was elected the youth municipality in 2017 – and not without reason. Many things are done to create an environment for young people with a youth café and later on a youth house with opportunities for taking part in many different activities.

In Sonderborg you will find residencies at reasonable prices. The office for dormitories has seven residency halls, and all of them lie close to educational institutions and the centre of town.

You can apply for the residencies at the office for residence halls at the websiteKollegiernes Kontor
