Coronavirus – Information for Applicants and Offer Holder

The International Relations Office of CHSSU is carefully monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, and recognize that its impact may create uncertainty for our offer holders and future students.
We are working to better understand the impact this may have particularly with regards to applicants meeting academic and language conditions and, once the situation becomes clearer, we will provide further information on this page. In the meantime, we wish to reassure all offer holders that we will do all that we can to support you and minimize the impact this may have on your admission.

We understand that our applicants and offer-holders will have concerns about the ongoing coronavirus outbreak. We are following the advice from Universities, YOK and the YODAK, ensuring the welfare of our students and staff is our absolute priority. We have taken the action to temporarily move our teaching online and to close all non-essential areas of our campus. In addition, we have canceled on-campus events for prospective students and applicants for now.

We will continue to review this and will provide further updates on this page.

This is a very unsettling time for all applicants but please be assured that we will do all we can to ensure these changes won't affect your opportunity to attend our University in the coming academic year. Again, any updates will appear on this page as soon as they are confirmed.

If you have any questions you can contact us, but please check the FAQs below first where we have aimed to answer your queries
