Notifications and requests on all overseas travels (study abroad, overseas conferences, research exchanges, and personal trips) for FY2020 (2nd report)
To all students
In light of the unprecedented scope of the COVID-19, Chiba University has canceled all study abroad programs and requested all students to refrain from traveling overseas during Term 1 - Term 3. We thank you for your understanding and cooperation up until now.
More than half a year has passed since the WHO announced the COVID-19 a pandemic. However, unfortunately, the counts of COVID-19 cases still keep on fluctuating around the world, and we cannot foresee when it would stabilize.
Considering the situation, to prioritize students' lives and safety, Chiba University requests all students to understand and observe the following during Term 4 - Term 6.
1. Study abroad programs
Chiba University cancels all study abroad programs in Term4 - Term 6 regardless of countries and areas. Study abroad programs individually planned by students should also be called off.
However, please note that we might approve some study abroad programs when deemed safe. If such a case arises, we will deliver you the information promptly.
Also, if your supervising teacher acknowledges that the study abroad you individually plan is feasible, please contact the International Student Division.
2. Overseas travels for research exchanges and conferences
Please refrain from traveling overseas for research or conferences.
3. Overseas travels for personal reasons
Please refrain from traveling overseas for personal reasons.
