The approach to teaching and learning is academic but also practical. As a University of Applied Sciences, KSH has maintained close links and co-operations with institutions such as charities, public providers and clinics in the areas of Social and Health Care for many decades. These connections ensure the most practical application of courses for students.

The outlook at KSH is very international. Lecturers also teach at European partner universities. These international experiences and ideas gained abroad directly inspire the teaching at KSH.
