Classes in the 2021 Academic Year (Update No. 9)
- Class Implementation Policy from June 21
As stated in the announcement Classes in the 2021 Academic Year (Update No. 8) - Class Implementation Policy from June 1, Hosei University expressed its determination that for the course of the state of emergency, in principle, classes would be taught in an online format, while some experiments, practical training, classes with small numbers of students and certain lectures were allowed to be taught in a face-to-face format. In addition, Hosei University communicated that once the state of emergency had ended classes would in principle return to their original format as of the beginning of April, and be taught in-person.
The government has decided to lift state of emergency for Tokyo. Following this, Tokyo will transition to a quasi-state of emergency with certain measures remaining in place. However, from June 21, Hosei University will resume the implementation of classes based on a face-to-face format. Courses that had been scheduled to be held in-person this academic year will be converted in stages from an online format to a face-to-face format. As such, students should check the Learning Management System in regards to their future class schedule.
That being said, the status of infections remains unpredictable. Under the guidance of the university’s medical staff, we are taking all necessary measures and precautions to prevent infections. However, in order for students to return to campus life they need to adhere to these precautions, for example, by always wearing masks, avoiding talking when eating as well as avoiding parties involving alcohol. In addition, Hosei University has compiled the 「新型コロナウイルス感染防止の取り組み－えこぴょんからの10個のお願い－」 (Japanese only) which lists 10 special requests for infection control measures that are especially relevant for our students. By all means please have a read of this.
In the future, we will continue to change our class implementation policy according to the status of novel coronavirus infections as well as social conditions, and we will make further announcements should our class implementation policy change again. Please continue to regularly check information on classes on the Hosei University website, Hoppii, and the Learning Management System.
We ask for your continued understanding and cooperation.
