Do I receive accreditation from Oxford University?

No, but on successful completion of the assignment, our online students do receive a Completion Certificate signed by the Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies Continuing Education Department Director, Dr. Nicholas Sutton, with their name and grades.

Can I study from anywhere?

Yes. Courses are open to anyone, anywhere in the world.

Can I get a refund?

We will give a 100% refund on cancellations received before the course commencement date. We will give a 65% refund if during the first week you decide you don’t want to continue for any reason.

After the first week we can discuss a refund or transfer you to a later course under special circumstances, such as ill health. It is our policy to extend the greatest possible flexibility to students under these circumstances.

Do I need to buy a book or any other materials?

No, all materials are included in the course. In some courses the online course notes are available for purchase in book form, but this is for convenience only and is by no means a necessity.

Do I need good computer skills?

Don’t worry about technical skills – if you can handle email then you’re ready to go.

Can I enrol on more than one course?

Yes, as many as you feel you can manage. However, if you haven’t studied at University level before or for a long time, you may like to start with one course to get a feel for how much time is involved.

How often do these courses run?

Currently, four times a year: January, April, July, and October.

How do I pay?

Secure payment can be made at enrolment using major credit cards or PayPal. If you can’t pay by card then contact us to arrange payment by cheque or bank transfer.

In what order should I take the courses?

You can take as many or as few courses as you like in any order you like. Having said that, the Introduction to Hinduism courses make a good starting point for their excellent overview of the topics that other courses specialise in.

How long does enrolment take?

Enrolment is made immediately upon full payment.
