Other Information

Medium of Instruction

The medium of instruction for students enrolled in diploma level courses is as per RCI norms while for degree courses, the regulations of the concerned university are followed. Notwithstanding this, every attempt is made to provide support to students who require assistance with reference to language. As of now, all courses offered by the institute and its regional centers are full time.


AYJNISHD, in keeping with the stature of a national Institute, invites renowned scholars from India and abroad to interact with the students. It has always been the endeavor of the Institute to make the students appreciate their roots but to also think global. It tries to create awareness amongst students about the latest techniques and technology in their chosen field of specialization. Internet facility is available in the Institute’s Library.


Students are expected to be regular and punctual. In case the attendance of a student falls below the percentage required by the concerned university the student may not be allowed to appear for the final examination. As the various affiliating universities have different norms with reference to attendance, students are strongly advised to ascertain the requirement at the beginning of the academic year.

Student Counseling

A senior faculty member is appointed as Student Welfare Officer for all issues ranging from personal to professional. A Course-coordinator is appointed at the level of Head of Department to monitor the progress of students of each course. Faculty members are also appointed as tutors for all courses.

Sports and Cultural activities

Students are encouraged to participate in indoor / outdoor sports and cultural programmes held in the Institute during Annual Day Celebrations and other important events such as Indian Speech & Hearing Association (ISHA) conferences and National Convention for Education of the Deaf (NCED) programmes.

Canteen Facilities

Canteen facilities are available in accordance with the requirements of the centers. Students can avail the facility on direct payment to the canteen management. The amount payable varies from center to center.


The Institute provides hostel accommodation on payment to a limited number of outstation candidates, both at Mumbai and the Regional Centers. A cot, study table and chairs are provided in the hostel rooms. Hostel Wardens are available to assist the students and to maintain discipline. Hostel is allotted on first-cum-first served basis.


Discipline has to be maintained by the students in class rooms, clinics and hostel. Smoking and consumption of alcohol is strictly prohibited in the Institute premises and hostel. Complaints are viewed seriously and action, as deemed fit, is initiated by the competent authority.


The Institute authorities take utmost care and preventive measures have been instituted to curb the menace of ragging in the institute and in the hostel. An anti ragging committee has been formed comprising senior faculty and staff that counsel the students and bring to the notice of students that ragging can result in suspension, expulsion or rustication from the college, commencement of criminal proceedings and even imprisonment. The committee takes special surprise rounds and maintains day to day contact with the students to ensure that no untoward incident occurs in the Institute premises. All students and their parents / guardian are required, at the time of admission, to submit an affidavit that they are aware of the repercussions of ragging.

Placement Cell

Though it is not the responsibility of the Institute to provide jobs to students, the Institute has a Placement cell that attempts to bring together students who are in the process of completing their studies and organizations looking to employ audiologists, speech pathologists and educators. Students may find it helpful to enroll themselves with the Placement Cell.

Student Feedback

Student feedback with reference to the courses, faculty and facilities is obtained annually. As confidentiality is ensured the feedback is unbiased and this enables actions for improvement.
