New Intake at ITAS

We are delighted to announce that ITAS will take in new students on a course to be held in September/October 2017. This course, Classical Tibetan I, is part of the ITAS Certificate Programme, which will take at least six years to complete. At this point we plan to offer an introductory cycle of three subsequent courses, Classical Tibetan 1 to 3. In the first two courses, basic Tibetan grammar is covered, while the third course is a reading class that makes use of the previously gained knowledge of the language. Whether ITAS will be able to offer more advanced courses after this introductory cycle will depend on the availability of teachers and students. Recommendations As the ITAS programme is quite intense and aims at high quality, please make sure to spend time before the next course in preparation. It is also worth making up your mind about whether you are prepared for the intense, ongoing study which will last a few years. The programme includes academic methodologies and contexts as well as languages (Tibetan and Sanskrit). Initially those interested are recommended to strengthen their understanding of English. You will find further information on our website: https://itas-uni.eu/content/itas-programme-events or contact us at course-info@itas-uni.eu, if you are potentially interested in the next course. Wewill update you and offer further suggestions concerning preparatory work.
