Undergraduate Studies

Undergraduate studies are for those who have completed higher secondary school (10+2) but have not earned a bachelor's degree, or for those who have completed a bachelor's degree program in a different discipline and now want to join a program of Buddhist Studies.

Undergraduate students may enroll in the full four-year BA program or in the Certificate Course in Buddhist Studies or alternatively, study as visiting students or non-degree students.

Please note that the entry requirement of a higher secondary school diploma may, in exceptional circumstances, be waived for applicants seeking to enroll as non-degree students, but that such students will not be eligible to receive study visas.
