1. New BA in Buddhist Studies program in KIBI from 2014 onwards
We are happy to announce that KIBI will commence a degree program in Buddhist Studies for the first time. The degree program will be offered in collaboration with Mewar University (MU), Rajasthan.
We are aware that there are hundreds of students who received a valuable Buddhist education from KIBI in the past. Nevertheless, in order to guarantee that our graduates will be able to properly engage with the international community of Buddhist scholars in our modern societies, to offer a recognized degree has become an issue of great importance. Therefore we are doing our best to provide students with a Buddhist education of high quality, as has been the case in the past, but additionally also offer an opportunity to earn a recognized degree.
The new registration application form for the BA course needs to be submitted by post to Mewar University: (better speed post)

An orientation program will be held at MU. This means that all KIBI degree students will travel together to MU in Chittorgarh, Rajasthan, at the beginning of their first semester. The exact travel dates and schedule will be organized by MU and KIBI.
Former KIBI students who already earned a diploma certificate of KIBI or completed equivalent education in KIBI, and also the current KIBI academic students, can directly enter into the 2nd year of the BA program. Concerned students should tick “lateral entry for BA studies” in the application form. The KIBI office will then send the mark sheet papers for the 1st academic year of current KIBI academic students to the university. Former KIBI students who apply for lateral entry are requested to send a copy of their mark sheets to KIBI.
Although the course runs only for a period of seven months as an actual on-site course, we will have to charge you the study fees for eight months due to the UGC rules for running an academic year. Your period of enrollments is counted from the 1st of September until the 1st of May. If you take vacation for the whole of the semester break, KIBI won’t charge you for accommodation and board during your leave.
