Due to the worldwide impact of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), the study abroad 2020 spring recruitment which was scheduled to be held from April to May is postponed to a later date. The application period is planned to start in late June, and the announcement of the result will be in early August. Details will be announced later on CIE homepage, so please check the website regularly for the latest information. CIE is working on collecting the information from partner universities, so please understand that we are unable to answer any detail questions about the spring recruitment at this moment.Usually, programs provided in the study abroad spring recruitment include 1 year/1 semester programs starting half a year later in fall, and 1 year programs starting from the spring of next year. However, with the postponement of the 2020 spring recruitment, the preparation period for programs starting in fall cannot be ensured. Therefore, we are sorry to announce that CIE will not provide study abroad programs starting in fall, but only programs starting in 2021 spring this time.
Depending on the future influence of the novel coronavirus, the plan above might be changed accordingly. There are also chances that programs might be canceled after the recruitment and selection period. Please note that in this situation, CIE will inform you as soon as possible.
