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 study abroad 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.
