CSN and study funding

Studies at EHS are eligible for funding from CSN.

CSN will be notified of your registration at EHS via Ladok.

Apply for study funding

  • Apply well in advance. If you are going to read a whole program, it is best to apply for support for one full academic year at a time.
  • In order to receive study funding, you must register for the courses you start. When the semester ends, you must have registered for the same number of weeks and points as stated in your study funding decision.
  • Apply at CSN

If you finish or interrupt your studies: Always report to CSN!

  • If you cancel your studies or take a study break, you are no longer entitled to study support. Therefore, it is important that you inform CSN as soon as possible, but at the latest within a week of the date you stop studying. Future payments will be stopped so you don't have to pay back any money. However, you may retain the money you have received up until the break. Read more on CSN

If you or your relatives fall ill report the sickness to the Social Insurance Office!

  • It is important to report sickness to the Swedish Social Insurance Agency (Försäkringkassan) when you receive study support from CSN so that you can keep your grants and loans while you are sick. CSN can also take into account that you have been ill when looking at your study results. You must therefore register as soon as possible, preferably the first day you are ill. Read more on CSN's website.
  • There is no obligation to report illness to EHS, but it is good that the teacher is notified of your absence and the reason for it. Teachers’ email addresses can be found under Contact, but messages can also be sent via Canvas. All teaching at EHS is compulsory - see further on this page under the heading "Teaching".

 

E-mail

Make sure that messages from EHS do not end up in spam. You should be able to find "Spam settings" or something similar in the settings.

If you have an address that does not allow unlimited number of messages (eg hotmail), it is important that you regularly empty your mailbox so that messages are processed.

It is incumbent on the student to notify any change of e-mail address to the EHS administration: kursadministrator@ehs.se.

However, if you have changed your social security number, you are entitled to a new certificate. If so, contact the study guide on the human rights program: monica.helles@ehs.se

 

Examination certificate / Registry excerpt

Since most students can obtain certificates directly from Ladok, via "Student login - Ladok" in the menu under "Student", no result certificates are sent to students until after the end of the school year. Anyone who is unable to obtain a certificate himself can order a printout from kursadministrator@ehs.se

A certificate is always sent to students after the degree has been issued. Note that the certificate is a document of value that you should keep. We do not send out copies of certificates.

 

Continued studies

If a student has met the required prerequisites (check these carefully), they can begin new courses. It is possible to start new courses even if up to 15 credits remain outstanding from courses which have not been completed. If the number of points outstanding is greater than 15, it is incumbent on the student to contact the study guide for study planning. If a course is started without these requirements being met, the student risks being asked to leave the course.

Students on programs register themselves for courses to the study counselors. The applications for stand-alone courses / online courses is made at www.antagning.se.

 

Insurance

State universities have accident insurance for their students via the Kammarkollegiet, but unfortunately, as an independent university, we cannot take out such insurance. So you as a student need to make sure that you have accident insurance so that you are protected in case of accidents.

 

Recording of lectures

1. Sound recording, photography and filming in teaching situations are allowed. You should let the teacher know about your intention to record or film before the lecture.

2. The teacher has the right to explicitly prohibit recording during the teaching session if they believe that recording would interfere with the teaching activity. Such a prohibition must be justified. Any student who is participating in the teaching situation has the right to ask the teacher to prohibit recording.

3. Students with disabilities, who have received a decision on support measures by the university's coordinator for students with disabilities due to the disability, are not covered by these rules.

4. Permission to film or record does not imply that such recordings may be disseminated or made available in a manner contrary to the Copyright (literary and artistic) law (1960: 729), or any other law. The student is only entitled to use the recording for his or her own private use.

5. These rules do not affect the university's ability to record, photograph and film lectures and other teaching situations as part of the university's activities.

 

LADOK - Antagning.se

EHS uses the LADOK platform to register students’ details and progress. Course registrations and grades from EHS are included in the national Ladok system and are downloaded both to CSN and to Antagning.se. Note, however, that the qualifications on Antagning.se will only be updated if you have a current application there. Read more at Antagning.se: Link>

Older qualifications, however, will not be entered into LADOK. Anyone who has courses in curriculum 3 or earlier (ie course codes starting at 3 or lower, ex 3-XX-XXX) must continue to submit a certificate from THS in order to obtain these qualifications. In principle, there are courses from 1 July 2007 in Ladok. If you notice that courses that should be in LADOK do not appear to be included, please contact the course administrator or study director.

 

LADOK - Student login

By logging in as a student to Ladok you can find information about admissions, registrations and results. You can also check, and if necessary change, your contact information and obtain national certificates of your results. To use the service, you either use your login information at www.antagning.se/se/start or eduID, a kind of e-identification for the university. Go to Student Login: Link>

 

Equal treatment

EHS works to combat harassment and discrimination of all kinds and to promote the equal rights of students, regardless of gender, ethnic, religious or other beliefs, sexual orientation or disability.

If, as a student, you feel that you have been subjected to abusive treatment, you should, if possible, first speak with the person(s) who acted against you or contact the student union. If this does not help, contact the Dean.

Read more about the law on equal treatment of students at the university and our action plan. 

 

Premises

Acknowledgment of key

All students at EHS who want to stay in the premises when the front doors are locked must sign out an electronic tag that acts as a key. This key tag is issued for a small fee by the caretaker whose office is located in the administration corridor on the entrance level. He is usually there Monday to Thursday, 10 am-11.30am. He is available at other times by agreement. The caretaker is not there on Fridays.

Attendance requirements

EHS applies mandatory attendance. The university's educational profile is based on the close interaction between students, teachers and literature. The student must ensure that they make up for lost teaching time.

Regarding lectures, with the approval of the teacher a student can be absent for up to 20% of lectures. The teacher has the right to ask those who have more than 20% absence to carry out extra tasks, to compensate for lost teaching. If the student has an absence level of 50% or more, the course is considered to be canceled, even if assessed assignments have been completed.

With regard to seminars / group exercises and other group teaching opportunities 100% attendance applies. Scheduled seminars / group exercises at EHS are mandatory. Preparation for these and active participation in them are counted as part of the assessment. The teacher in each course determines the type of preparation and participation required. In the case of any absence, the teacher has the right to request a supplementary assignment instead.

 

Parking

A parking card (P-skiva) is valid at Enskilda University College parking. You will be allowed 2 hours in the small visitor parking and 4 hours in the large parking lot. There is also a fee parking next to the EHS.

Parking permits for EHS students are valid weekdays from 8am to 6pm and can be obtained from the caretaker.

Sick, caring for children or close relatives

It is important to remember that if you have study funding, in order to keep your study funds in case of illness, you must make a sick report to the Swedish Social Insurance Agency (Försäkringskassan) on the first day you are ill. CSN does not count the weeks you are ill and in receipt of study funding towards the total number of weeks you are allowed for study funding. Those weeks are also not counted when CSN assesses your study results. Even shorter periods of sickness can affect the assessment of your study results. It is therefore important that you always report to the Swedish Social Insurance Agency (Försäkringskassan) when you are ill. Read also what happens when you take care of children or relatives:  Read more on CSN's website.

There is no obligation to report sickness absence to EHS, but it is good that the teacher is notified of your absence and the reason for it. Teacher's email addresses can be found under Contact. All teaching at EHS is compulsory - see below under the heading "Teaching" below.

Oral examinations cannot replace written assessments for individual students except to adjust minor aspects of the original examination or in the case of students with registered disabilities.

Supplementary assignments

Teachers may request supplementary assignments if a student has, for example, missed a seminar. Furthermore, teachers can require supplementary assignments from students in cases where misunderstandings have contributed to a lack of clarity about the requirements for the assessment.
