2020 Autumn Graduation Ceremony held


The Autumn Graduation Ceremony at Osaka University was held in the Convention Center on Friday, September 25, 2020. Degrees were conferred upon a total of 333 graduates, including 59 bachelor's, 86 master's, and 188 doctor's degrees (including 8 graduates from the Program for Leading Graduate Schools).

During his congratulatory speech, President NISHIO Shojiro gave an empowering message to the new graduates, saying, "What is truly important is that each of us live our lives while looking positively toward the future during this time of COVID-19. We can do this by striving to make our lives better and find greater happiness in our day to day life. We will not be beaten by a virus. Today, though fresh ideas are necessary in the medical field for urgently developing vaccines and effective drugs, they are also needed in other fields and aspects of our lives, including the way we live, communicate with others, and form the image of what an ideal family life should be. I sincerely hope that you will strive to meet such demands of the era as graduates of Osaka University."

President Nishio concluded with some words of encouragement: "I sincerely hope that each and every one of you will have a bright future, and live a happy life with your family members and friends."
