Regarding the Novel Coronavirus (A Message from the President)
We have already informed our students that the 2020 entrance ceremonies for the Graduate School, the University, the Junior College, and the Japanese Studies Center for International Students would be canceled, and that classes would begin on May 7th(Thur.) and end on August 12th (Wed.) to help prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
However, there is still no sign of an end to its spread, and I suspect that our students may be concerned as they experience the multiple restrictions that society is being forced to undergo. KUFS will do its utmost to ensure that you live your university life with peace of mind.
It is important for each of us to take action based on accurate information to bring the spread of this infection under control. In addition to encouraging handwashing, gargling, and wearing masks, we ask you to refrain from any behavior that could lead you to be in confined or congested spaces, or come into close contact with others.
The period leading up to the start of classes will be a time for students to work on self-study, and the faculty members are currently hard at work so as to inform you of the details as soon as possible.
We at the Kyoto University of Foreign Studies and the Kyoto Junior College of Foreign Languages hope to overcome this difficult situation through the cooperation of our students and faculty members.
