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 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, 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.
Online Learning
RYI offers a large number of online courses designed for students who wish to study but are unable to attend classes in Nepal. These cover Philosophy, Language and Specialized Studies and may be taken for credit or simply to further personal interests.

The Centre for Buddhist Studies is pleased to announce its 12th Summer Studies Program of intensive language training and Buddhist study courses for international students.
Come and study with us this Summer! The Program begins on June 10th and will run through August 7th, 2015.
