Government COVID-19 regulations:
IIJNM is following all State and Central government covid norms and guidelines. In the case of a further lockdown, the quality of academics at IIJNM will not be affected.
While the previous lockdowns upended social structures and wreaked havoc on the country’s education system, IIJNM was able to pivot to online classes and studios immediately. Here’s how IIJNM successfully taught journalism during the pandemic.
