"At" is the preposition we would tend to use in English.


Is it possible to say Læreren underviser VED skolen ? I've heard you can use ved universitet.

    I'm not exactly sure. Some people might say it formally, but to me it would sound like the teacher was teaching by (next to) the school.

    I would say:

    • Læreren underviser på skolen (a specific school)

    • Læreren underviser i folkeskolen (he teaches in the public school system)

    • Læreren underviser på gymnasiet (a specific secondary school)

    • Læreren underviser i gymnasiet (he is a secondary school teacher)

    • Lektoren underviser på universitet.

    You could use ved to describe a job title:

    • Han er lærer ved/på Xxxx Skole

    • Hun er lektor ved/på Københavns Universitet

    But again, I'm not sure if academics/teachers use a different terminology.
