Advanced Pali Course

This summer, Prof. Gombrich will run another Advanced Pali reading course in Oxford in August.

The dates for this course are as follows: arrive Tuesday evening, 14th August, depart Thursday morning 23rd August. There will be no class on Sunday 19th August.

This course will be unlike the introductory course.  It will mainly consist of reading texts together in class.

As in previous years, students on the course will be housed in Clive Booth Student Village, which is owned by Oxford Brookes University.  Accommodation costs for the entire course come to £240.  The accommodation block is about 10 mins walk from the lecture room that we shall be using.  

The cost of the course, excluding the accommodation, will be £360 (covering lecture room hire and expenses).

In order to secure your place upon the course you must pay a non-refundable deposit of £150 when booking.  We will send out details upon receipt of your application form.  Payment can be by cheque, or by Paypal (requiring an extra cost to cover transaction fees).

Payment of the balance must be received by 12th June.

Only twelve pupils will be accepted on the course.  The course requires a minimum of five participants to run.

Access to the Pali-English Dictionary is essential. Access to Warder’s Introduction to Pali, and Geiger’s grammar, is desirable (a few copies will be supplied in the classroom).
