We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the students and parents for the understanding and cooperation which enabled us to conduct the first semester classes of the 2021 academic year without delay during the Corona disaster.
In order to provide students with the opportunity to study on campus and to communicate with other students, we held classes face-to-face in principle during the first semester. We feel that students have had a meaningful school life while taking care of their own infection control measures.
However, since August, infection with a new variant of Covid-19 (delta variant) has been spreading rapidly, mainly in the Tokyo metropolitan area, and infection among young people is also spreading. In response to this situation, the university will be conducting all classes online from the beginning of the second semester of the academic year 2021 for a limited period of time.
Reitaku University’s response for the second semester will be as follows.
【Online Class Period】
September 20 (Mon.) – November 2 (Tue.) (Tentative)
※Classes will be cancelled due to the university festival from October 28 to November 2.
※From November 3 onward, classes will be held under the same system as in the first semester, but will be reviewed depending on the infection situation.
