You can be excempt from this requirement if you are a native English speaker i.e. from an English speaking country, or if you have had prior education taught in English, or if you have more than 2 years of work experience in an organization where the primary mode of communication is English.

There may be some partial scholarships available. Please check the scholarship section of the website for information. Scholarships are generally awarded only for masters degree programs and to students who have demonstrated exceptional academic achievements in the past.

WES is mainly only able to evaluate certificates issued by government universities. This is also the case for various country-specific evaluation agencies and their policies vary greatly from one agency to another. As we are a private school, agencies like WES, or country-specific agencies that provide equivalence may not be able to evaluate the certificates issued by JLI. As such, any equivalence is not guaranteed. If you seek equivalence, then we recommend you to pursue (or upgrade to) one of the dual degree master’s program that we offer in collaboration with our partner universities.

Advanced diploma programs are longer in duration than diploma and professional diploma programs. Certificate programs are even shorter. Advanced Diploma programs offer a minimum of 32 credits, Diploma programs 22 credits, Professional Diploma programs 18 credits and certificate programs 14 credits.

Once you have completed all your program requirements and submitted the program completion notification form it will be verified by the institute. Upon completion of all required administrative checks, you will qualify to receive your degree. For our bachelor’s, master’s, and higher degree programs, a virtual graduation ceremony is conducted twice a year during which the degrees are presented to qualified students. The hard copies of the documents are couriered to graduates thereafter. For all other programs such as diplomas, postgraduate diplomas, etc., the completion documents are sent within 4 to 6 weeks of completion.
