Information about the coronavirus
Due to the ongoing corona pandemic, the university's leadership has a team, lead by the Vice-Chancellor, that decides on urgent issues and plans for different scenarios and measures in the short and long term. SKH respects the recommendation of the Government and the Public Health Agency.

SKH's measures are based on two purposes:
- To help reduce the spread of infection as much as possible.
- To ensure that our students can complete their education and receive their higher education credits.
