Higher Technical Examination Programme

In Denmark, the Higher Technical Examination Programme (HTX, in Danish: Højere Teknisk Eksamen) is a 3-year vocationally oriented general upper secondary programme which builds on the 10th-11th form of the Folkeskole. It leads to the higher technical examination, the HTX-examination, which permits a student to qualify for admission to higher education, subject to the special entrance regulations that apply to the individual course. The programme gives special attention to scientific, technical and communicative subjects. With a HTX-diploma in your hand, you are guaranteed to be able to study at any Danish technical, scientific or traditional university as well as technical and technological academy (Akademi) or college (Professionshøjskole).
