About Conferment of Diplomas
Cancellation of the 2019 Academic Year Graduation and Conferral of Degree Ceremony

Amid the increase in the number of people infected with Covid-19, all parties are being strongly urged to prevent the further spread of infection. Considering the need to protect the health of the new graduates and their families, we also decided that the gathering of many people under one roof was something to be avoided.

We have therefore made the decision to cancel the Graduation and Conferral of Degree Ceremony for the 2019 academic year, and ask for your understanding of this step.

Although we have cancelled the ceremony, we intend to confer diplomas, certificates of graduation, etc. in smaller groups on the level of undergraduate faculties, graduate schools, seminars, etc. Although there has been no change in the date of these conferrals, we shall inform all of the times and places on the university website by March 10.

While I cannot meet and congratulate all of you in person in my role as President, I would nevertheless like to hereby express my heartfelt congratulations to the families of the new graduates, along with my earnest wishes for further activities by the graduates themselves.
