Study Abroad

O.P. Jindal Global University (JGU) has established itself as a global university of international repute while stressing and realising the great need for developing sustainable linkages with leading universities and institutions across the globe.

The Office of International Affairs & Global Initiatives (IAGI) was established at JGU in early 2017 with the objective of institutionalising the internationalisation of the University towards a truly global university with widespread opportunities for its students and faculty members in terms of students and staff exchange with partner universities; joint teaching opportunities for faculty members; collaborative research activities with joint projects and publications, joint seminars, conferences and workshops, to name a few.

JSJC provides students the opportunity to pursue study abroad programmes at the following partner universities:

  1. Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya, Israel

  1. Vietnam National University

  1. Koç University, Turkey

  1. Universiti Teknologi MARA, Malaysia

International Opportunities: Our Global Footprints

Overseas Graduate Studies
Our alumni have secured admission at reputed institutions such as the University of Oxford, London School of Economics, School of Oriental and African Studies and Kings College, London. Our students usually apply for graduate studies at universities in Asia, United Kingdom and the United States. We regularly conduct workshops and interactive sessions where students get a chance to interact with faculty at overseas institutions for valuable counsel on application and admission. We encourage students to apply for graduate student scholarships and make sure they are abreast with the latest information.

Student Exchange and Summer Schools

Our students get to attend international summer schools and in the past participated at a prestigious programme at the University of California Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism.

We encourage students to spend a semester abroad studying at one of our partner institutions with a number of the world’s top-ranking, prestigious universities including Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya, Israel; Vietnam National University, Vietnam; Koç University, Turkey; and Universiti Teknologi MARA, Malaysia.

In the past students visited KOC University Istanbul, Turkey and Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya near Tel Aviv in Israel to report on refugee/ immigration crisis, religious extremism and stories of ethnic/ diplomatic conflict. We collaborate with multiple overseas institutions including journalism, media and communication studies programmes at the Hong Kong Baptist University, The University of Sydney, Macquarie University, KOC University and the University of Derby.

In the true spirit of remote learning, JSJC students were nominated to register for online courses in 2021 at the University of Sydney; students of Universitas Pancasakti Tegal, Indonesia enrolled for our online courses. We also welcome international students to spend a semester at JSJC.

International Conferences

Our faculty regularly attend international conferences and in the past presented their research at the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication (AEJMC) and International Communication Association (ICA) annual meetings in places like Chicago and Prague as well as at the Nordic Institute of Asian Studies Conference at the University of Lund, among others. Mrinalini Sinha of the University of Michigan, Arvind Rajagopal of New York University, Cherian George of Hong Kong Baptist University, Britta Ohm and Chinmayi Arun, affiliate of the Berkman Klein Center of Internet & Society at Harvard University are among scholars of global repute who visited JSJC to address our students and faculty.

In 2019, JSJC hosted a joint conference with the University of Oregon and invited scholars and academics from across the world to present their research.
