Regarding the Second Semester Classes Offering

Dear Students,

    • The Second Semester of Academic Year 2020 starts on Oct. 1st as scheduled.
    • During the class registration period (Oct. 1st~Oct. 14th), all classes will be offered online on account of restriction on the number of students in classrooms. Afterwards, as a general rule, they will switch to face-to-face classes. Please note that some classes may be conducted via online platforms in consideration of COVID-19 infection prevention, the availability of classrooms and so on. Specific information in this regard will be announced later.
    • Students should return home in Muroran by Oct. 1st, two weeks before the start of face-to-face classes, and stay home with mandatory self-health observation (recording of physical condition and temperature).

In the process of implementation of face-to-face classes, MuroranIT ensures to take precautionary measures, such as adequate ventilation, restriction on the number of people, and disinfection in classrooms, to reduce the risk of infection with the novel coronavirus as much as possible.


Students are also asked to continue to follow our instructions, namely “hand-washing with soap,” “disinfecting hands with alcoholic sanitizer,” “wearing masks” and “strictly prohibiting private talk,” before entering university buildings and classrooms. 


Students who plan to take an intensive course starting from Sep. 11th, 2020, should arrive in Muroran two weeks before the start date of the course (i.e., as it starts on Sep. 11th, they should reach Muroran by Aug. 28th) and take two-week self-quarantine along with health observation.


Recently, several infected cases have been reported across Japan. Recognizing that we may face the risk of infection at any time in our everyday life, please make sure to abide by Action Guideline for Avoiding COVID-19 (issued on Apr. 13th, 2020) posted on the University website.
