The Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) has released a revised academic calendar for the monsoon semester. As per the revised calendar issued by JNU, which has conducted the trimester exams amid the lockdown, students will be allowed to return to campus only by June-end.

Currently, the university is holding online classes as well as teacher training programmes in the online teaching-learning space. A series of lectures, which are open to all, are also being run on the subject of coronavirus. A lecture on Ramayana and another on Bhagvad Gita conducted by JNU had garnered attention earlier.
The winter semester, as per the schedule, will be held till July 31. This includes semester exams and results as well. The provisional registration for the monsoon semester (for enrolled students) will begin from July 25. The classes will begin from August 1 onwards for the enrolled students.
