Dear prospective and current IPADS students,
Like all other communities around the world, IPADS/UTokyo is feeling strain under these unprecedented circumstances. We are continuously monitoring the situation on campus and around the world caused by Coronavirus (COVID-19), and trying to do our best to cope with the situation. Your safety, well-being and unchanged high quality educational experience are our priority.
Following are the information and instructions that we can let you know at this moment:
Having said this, we must also admit that this spread of Covid-19 virus is an unprecedented issue. It is difficult for us to gauge any measures which will be implemented by the government of Japan in the future and the repercussion these measures may have on September enrolment. It is, thus, up to you to decide whether to continue with the admission process or not. Please note that we cannot be responsible for any part of your decision that you may take.
We will update the information frequently and not delay in delivering necessary/useful information for your day to day decisions and convenience. If you have any inquiries, please contact our office without hesitation.
