國立成功大學防疫公告 NCKU Epidemic Prevention Announcement for 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) (20200215)
Dear Colleagues and Students,
From Feb. 10th, all travelers enter Taiwan via a transit through the People’s Republic of China (PRC), including Hong Kong and Macao, should be under home quarantine for a period of 14 days. Therefore, NCKU would like to advise you to avoid taking flights with a transit through China, including Hong Kong and Macao. If your flights are unchangeable and you will be under the 14-day home quarantine, NCKU can help to offer a pick-up, isolated dormitory and three meals per day during the 14-day home quarantine in dormitory. However, please make sure to inform us as early as possible prior to your entry to Taiwan. For further details, please see below the NCKU Emergency Measures for Home Quarantine.
A warm reminder again, if you cannot return to school before the school start date of March 2nd, the “Study at Ease Project” launched by NCKU can help you. Through multiple education methods, such as online registration and course enrollment, online education and assessment, and flexible study mechanism, NCKU endeavors to assist students to complete study as scheduled.
According to the recent contact results between the Office of International Affairs and NCKU’s sister universities in mainland China, many sister universities have responded that their school start date has not been determined due to the impacts of the epidemic. As the placement of their original students has yet to be arranged, they may not be able to accept more students from other universities now. Therefore, NCKU still recommends that students continue their studies through the online courses provided by the Study at Ease Project for NCKU Students. If students from mainland China have any questions, please feel free to discuss with the department. The Office of Academic Affairs is also willing to provide advice and assistance. If you encounter other difficulties, you can also seek for help from the Overseas and Mainland Chinese Students Affairs Division, Office of International Affairs. We are always here for you.
