There are a total of Six Assignments throughout the Course along with Self-study exercises (the final Section requires Two Assignments). This is to help students understand the material that they are studying.
At the end of a Course, a Final Test is given in order to examine your knowledge of Ayurvedic principles in the Course to make sure that you have understood them, which will be corrected or notes given (where applicable) and returned to you after grading.

I have found this course very interesting, rich and inspiring for me to go forwards, so first of all it is for me a base to start understanding Ayurveda. The knowledge I have learnt I am on the way to apply on my daily routine, for me and my family.
What some of our
latest graduates have said:
I took this course because it has all the original facets of Ayurveda. Most academies teach you how to face a physical problem. Here all branches are present and that's how it is meant to be.
I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to expand their knowledge of Ayurveda and Mantras. What I learned in the course has been extremely beneficial for applying Ayurveda principles and using the correct mantras for the different dosha types. It has been a blessing taking this course. Thank you.
