About SIMC Pune
Established in 1990, originally as the Symbiosis Institute of Journalism & Communication (SIJC), the Institute was renamed in 1998 as the Symbiosis Institute of Mass Communication (SIMC) to broaden the realm of media training beyond Journalism, keeping in step with the present industry requirements.
The year 2007 recognized the industry's diverse evolving needs and it was finally re-christened as 'Symbiosis Institute of Media & Communication'. A massive diversification of media has led to a revolution, where we are no longer passive users, but, media creators. The face of traditional media is undergoing a makeover, wherein each and every citizen can become an active participant contributing their ideas and opinions. SIMC believes in harnessing this potential and armed with the immense power of technology, we run with our apotheosis - Convergence. A significant milestone in SIMC's progress was its inclusion in the ambit of the Symbiosis International University in 2006.
The year 2008 saw the genesis of the Under-Graduate programme in Media Studies (Bachelors of Media Studies - BMS). This harnesses the best traditions of SIMC, offering a comprehensive experience through traditional academic learning and research with cyber and experiential learning.
Symbiosis Institute of Media and Communication will be the preferred destination for all who aspire to excel in the field of Media and Communication Management.
SET (Symbiosis Entrance Test) is a common objective written test conducted by Symbiosis for graduate programmes. It is the first step in seeking admission to Symbiosis Institute of Media & Communication (Undergraduate). Candidates are short-listed for the second round on the basis of SET scores. SIMC (UG) gives a varied weightage to SET components and does not go by the aggregate score alone.
The second round consists of assignments, subjective written test, group discussion, personal interview and verification of documents. The same shall be conducted in Pune at the Viman Nagar Campus.
