ITAS combines the Anglo-American module system with the philological system of Germany and France. This new and comprehensive approach includes both the translation of classical Tibetan works as well as the interpretation of lectures in Tibetan. On top of this, you are given comprehensive teachings on scientific research methods, history and culture.

ITAS focuses on small groups. This approach is more personal and leads to quick feedback. Long term studies are undertaken by e-learning, a system that has more than proven itself. Participants come from all over the world and give a strong international feel to the proceedings. We are very pleased about this diversity, and welcome each new nation.

Do you want to jump straight into a study programme or just attend a lecture? ITAS offers a continually growing study programme and will continue to do ever greater justice to the rich facets of Asian culture.


ITAS PROGRAMME The programme consists of two to three blocks of teachings per year, each lasting approximatly between one and two weeks. During the interval there is continual individual distance learning and e-learning. Students profit from the dynamic structure and compact teaching which is also used in other universities. In short, it is full steam ahead!

The programme offers training in the following subjects:

  • Classical Tibetan
  • Colloquial Tibetan
  • Research context
  • Research skills
