Assessed Module Classes

New Sanskrit Evening Class (from September)

We will be offering an exciting new course in Spoken Sanskrit from September:

Spoken Sanskrit: a living philosophical tradition

This course will be unique in the UK in teaching this ancient language as a spoken modern language, rather than just focusing on the literature. 

We anticipate that this course will be of particular interest to anyone interested in gaining wisdom through developing a greater understanding of who they are, and what life is about.

It will also be of interest to all people of Indian heritage who are looking to explore their traditions and culture.

Everyone is welcome, and we look forward to running this unique, new and exciting course.

Please consult the syllabus here.

Online enrolment will be available nearer the time, but do feel free to contact the MLC team to register your interest in advance:
