JNI is focused on creating an engaging, hands-on learning environment where each student is able to build a close rapport with their lecturers. Our theory classes typically contain no more than 25 students, while group therapy and supervision sessions are even smaller. This approach enhances students’ individual learning and allows everyone to feel at ease, where our experienced staff are available to give you the extra attention you need to help you reach your goals. Our administrative staff can also assist you with the use of equipment and booking rooms for client counselling.
We allow students to focus on their studies with easily accessible, comprehensive facilities educational resources.

Offering 24-hour access to our databases, online catalogue and extensive list of books and online videos, JNI’s Online Learning Portal is a digital extension of our library and educational services. The portal is ideal for students taking online classes as well as for on-campus students who can access these materials anytime, anywhere.
