Our courses are:
- Zoom based: we do not record our sessions (except for IGCSE), however we provide information about what is planned for and covered in each lesson. Links to all online course resources are also made available.
- The medium of instruction is English.
- Online: All communication is via email and WhatsApp using internet links to course resources. Hence students must be capable of using these.
- Free of Cost: There is no course fee. Courses are delivered on a दिव्य भक्ति (Divya Bhakti) basis in accordance with the principles of the Vedic education system that knowledge is priceless and not a commodity to be traded or commercialised. Students may, however, make a voluntary contribution to Sanskrut Bhakti to cover their essential administration costs e.g. Zoom, Google Drive, Website etc. Some courses, however, e.g. IGCSE and Higher Level 1 have formal examinations which incur registration fees, the amount is dependent on the Examinations Centres.
Our current course offerings are as follows:
