The JMSC uses the latest technology, equipment, software and editing systems, all of which are used within the industry.

Courses are taught by experienced journalists and scholars, all of whom have held senior positions in media organisations round the world. Many still report and produce output for organisations such as Reuters, The Daily Telegraph, CNN, The New York Times, ABC News, South China Morning PostNewsweek, BBC and The Hindu.
