The educational philosophy of the university gets translated into its somewhat unorthodox academic structure. Grounded in a faith in the unity of knowledge, JNU has sought to avoid the narrowly conceived Department structure of conventional universities, preferring instead to bring allied disciplines within a few broad and inclusive entities called Schools, under whose interactive ambit are placed the more specialized units, called Centres, There are also Special Centres that are outside even the broad structures of School but may grow further. 


The University brings out four research journals which have high academic visibility in India and abroad. These are Studies in History, International Studies, JSL (the Journal of the School of Language, Literature & Culture Studies) and Hispanic Horizons. Several members of the JNU faculty also edit national and international journals besides the above four.

Overall good
Akash Ajay rated 4 out of 5 stars

A wholesome education. Even though I was in Sciences I got to know a lot of social sciences-related topics and current issues from the university atmosphere. The faculty also has a lot of connections with universities abroad. The course work is comprehensive enough for the field, though there is some scope for improvement. The labs are also well equipped. The fees are some...
