Course offer

O.P. Jindal Global University has divided its education in six schools, of which the School for Liberal Arts & Humanities is of most interest to UCU students. JSLH offers a wide range of courses in nine academic disciplines: history, politics, sociology, anthropology, economics, literature, philosophy, psychology and performing and fine arts. On top of that, JSLH offers many interdisciplinary seminars. It is best to take courses in the School of Liberal Arts and Humanities, but the school is willing to discuss your course choice if you want to take some outside of JSLH. Science courses are very limited.  

The different schools are:

  • JSLH: Jindal School of Liberal Arts and Humanities
  • JSGP: Jindal School of Government and Public Policy
  • JGLS: Jindal Global Law School
  • JGBS: Jindal Global Business School
  • JSIA: Jindal School of International Affairs
  • JSJC: Jindal School of Journalism and Communication

Housing

Students are recommended to live on-campus. JGU provides single-gender residential accommodation for its students in its Halls of Residence (with housekeeping services). The campus has four dining halls where breakfast, lunch, evening snack and dinner are served seven days a week. In addition, the campus has a gym, various sports and recreational facilities, a food village, a university coffee shop, a Health Centre, a bookstore, a library, ATM, 24-hours security, a transport desk and a laundry facility. Activities on campus range from societies focusing on Debating, Fine Arts, Literature, Music, or Human Rights, and sports teams that include Cricket, Football, Volleyball, or Badminton. Living on JGU campus in Sonipat provides you with innumerable opportunities to travel in North of India. The capital of India, Delhi is just 30 kilometers from campus. 

Costs

Exchange students are exempt from paying the tuition fees. The estimated costs for residence hall, dining and laundry for an academic semester are INR 100,000 (~ EUR 1250). Life in India is considerably less expensive than in the Netherlands.
