Most of 38 international students intended to attend the degree awarding ceremony stayed abroad and failed to participate in the ceremony due to the epidemic. Only five undergraduate students and four postgraduate students took part in the ceremony. Although it is pity that they fail to attend the ceremony, epidemic prevention and control are our priority. Some international students expected that they could come back to the University to make up for it after the end of the outbreak. We sincerely wish that all students abroad could go through the difficult time and get together later.
Finally, international students awarded degrees took photos with their teachers to record the special and memorable moment.
