Information about the coronavirus
As a result of the ongoing corona infection, the university's leadership has activated a team 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.
This page was first published on 12 March. Latest Update 27 March.
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.
SKH respects the recommendation of the Government and the Public Health Agency saying that all universities close down to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Teaching is recommended instead to be conducted through distance learning, ie not in the regular premises.
All premises of SKH are closed for all students, with no exceptions, from 19 March at 17:00. SKH is now working to find solutions for distance learning for all programmes and courses.
All employees who can work from home should do that until 3 April, provided that the tasks can be carried out from home and are approved by Head of Department or Line Manager.
Teachers who do not have the prerequisites for conducting distance education from home can work from SKH's premises to gain access to both the technology and the technical support required.
Public events at SKH
SKH has made the decision to cancel all events until 14 April.
Admissions to courses and programmes
All admission tests planned to take place at SKH are postponed until after Easter. More information is given to those affected. SKH is also investigating alternative ways of conducting admissions tests where possible.
Work- and study-related trips
The Ministry for Foreign Affairs advises against all unnecessary trips to all countries. The recommendation is valid until 14 April, after which a new assessment will be made.
From 20 March they advise against unnecessary trips within Sweden aswell.
All work- and study-related trips inside and outside Sweden are therefore cancelled until 14 April.
