We meet two times a week to read two original Sanskrit texts and discuss issues of grammar, syntax, translation and interpretation. The course requires active preparation and participation.

Knowledge of aspects of ancient Indian culture through reading authentic texts
The timetables are available through My Timetable.
Mode of instruction
Attendance and participation are obligatory. Classes missed for a good reason (to the discretion of the conveners and to be discussed BEFORE the class takes place) will have to be made up with an extra assignment. Being absent without notification can result in a lower grade or exclusion from the term end exams and a failing grade for the course.
Two written examinations.
Two written examinations (w): one at the end of the first block (50%) and one at the end of the second block (50%), covering the texts read during each block.
In order to pass the course, students must obtain an overall mark of 5.50 (=6) or higher. The individual exams cannot be retaken. There is one opportunity for a re-sit of the entire course (100%).
The course is an integrated whole. The final examination and the assignments must be completed in the same academic year. No partial marks can be carried over into following years.
Inspection and feedback
