Dates and fees

There will be one or two intakes a year, depending on applicants. The next intake will be May 2018. 

Further intakes will depend on interest from former Foundation of Buddhist Thought students. We anticipate one or two intakes of about 40 students a year. Availability is assessed on a first-come first-enrolled basis, and we aim to limit the first intake to 30 students.


The course is only available to people who have completed the two-year Foundation of Buddhist Thought course.


The course fees are GBP £900.00  for the whole two and a half years of the course. MP3 CDs (Optional) may be purchased separately for GBP £70.00.

 Payments can be made online at our payment portal at , or international bank transfers

Sangha fund

We would like to offer free places to ordained Sangha, but this will rely on your generosity. If you would like to sponsor a monk or nun to enable them to participate in the course please include this in your application form.

We will add your donation to the Sangha fund and for each £396.00 accrued we will be able to offer the entire course for free to a member of the Sangha.
