From September 3 to 13, 2020, international freshmen from all over the world arrived at Minhang Campus and Xuhui Campus in several batches. Due to the impacts of the COVID-19, some freshmen could not register at the venue, thus, newcomers are allowed to register online and offline.
Start A Semester in Different Ways
To prevent and control the epidemic, this year’s international student registration work will be carried out online and offline. Different from the registration for Chinese freshmen, the orientation for international freshmen is more complicated, involving the issues of visas, insurances, and the epidemic situation in different countries. In order to ensure that every international freshman can register as required, the administrative departments have made great efforts to work out a viable solution since last semester. All the notifications have been sent to every student at home and abroad through various channels. Online registration procedures have been streamlined for freshmen who cannot come to Shanghai yet.
It did not come as a surprise that the designated spots for registration this year were less crowded. With joint efforts and thorough preparations, the administrative departments managed to keep everything under control. The “one-stop” registration services covering passports, visas, accommodations and insurances have brought great convenience to all the international freshmen. In addition, cleaning and disinfection supplies such as masks and hand washing gel were prepared for students in need. The international students were in high spirits with joyful smiles on their faces. Many of them took pictures with friends and teachers to record one of the most memorable day in their studies at SJTU.
