Diploma in Pali Studies

This course has been designed especially for those who wish to read the Pali canon on their own. The course comprises three parts, preliminary, medium and advance, each part comprising ten lessons. The course has been designed for those who do not have any prior knowledge of Pali language.

Each part will be taught within a semester running into four months at the end of which there will be a final examination. In addition, the participants are evaluated in every two weeks as a part of continuous evaluation. It is expected that at the conclusion of all three parts the participants will be able to read the original Pali texts with a help of a dictionary. Those who complete all three parts successfully will receive a ‘Diploma in PLI Studies’ certificate.
