Academic thinking meets Asia

ITAS combines the Anglo-American system with the philological thoroughness characteristic of European universities. The curriculum is orientated towards the European student and incorporates the training of translators and supports doctorate training and scientists.

Cultural borders are crossed in a positive way


Founded in 2003, ITAS focuses on Tibetan, as well as Indian and other East Asian languages, philosophies and culture.


All our teachers have degrees in Tibetology, Indology, Sinology, Buddhist Studies or Philosophy.


Students, as well as teachers, come from a variety of different countries.
