You may have already learnt from your teachers, classmates or media reports about the outbreak of pneumonia caused by the new coronavirus in China. Currently, Beijing has initiated the First-Level Response Mechanism for public health emergencies. Preventing and controlling the spread of the epidemic has become a top priority.
Following the unified arrangements by China’s Ministry of Education and Beijing municipal government, BFSU has strengthened inflow management and decided to postpone the beginning of the 2020 spring semester, so as to safeguard the safety and health of each student and staff.
We would like to hereby notify you upon the following most concerned issues:
1.Time for returning to the campus
It remains to be decided.
Before receiving the university's official notice for return, students who are already overseas please do not come back to campus. Students who have booked return tickets please timely apply for refund or rescheduling. In case you decide that you have to return due to particular reasons, you must report to your school counselor or class adviser at least two days in advance to get permission, and then enter the campus with the university’s approval.
2. Class attendance
If we are unable to begin the new semester according to the original schedule in the school calendar, you will be provided with online courses by professional teachers, starting from March 2nd, 2020. Please stay in touch with your instructors for further class arrangements and notifications by the university and your school.
For students who have booked a dormitory room on campus, the dormitory room will be reserved for you, and the retention period will be postponed until the new semester starts. No fee will be charged during the retention period.
Please send your email email@example.com visa-related counseling.
We deeply regret the inconveniences brought to you by this sudden and unpredictable epidemic upon the planning of your next semester. However, ensuring the safety and health of each student has been consistently our primary concern, and we sincerely hope to have your kind understanding, support and cooperation in this.
Please continue learning, stay active and work hard during this vacation.
