Study Online

A number of our semester-long courses are available for online study. These courses are live-streamed, with class recordings made available to students on Microsoft Teams. You can find the list of courses offered in the spring semester of 2024 here. The Spring ‘24 semester will run from January 15 to April 26, 2024.  

To study in our upcoming spring semester, students interested in for-credit courses can enroll in our MA prep or Visiting Student program while non-credit students can enroll through Non-Credit Study. 

Rangjung Yeshe Institute also provides a variety of online courses that can be enrolled in outside of our standard semesters. These courses are pre-recorded, enabling students to study at their own convenience. The courses can either be taken in an interactive format with access to a moderator and weekly office hours or self-study.  


These courses are self-paced and do not include a course moderator. They comprise pre-recorded lectures, accessible through Moodle, an open-source e-learning platform. Self-study courses are offered only on a non-credit basis. 


These courses provide access to a moderator who is available for weekly online office hours. Interactive courses may be taken on a for-credit* or non-credit basis. The courses comprise pre-recorded lectures, accessible through Moodle, an open-source e-learning platform. To enhance your comprehension, there are periodic quizzes and assignments. For-credit students are required to complete all course assignments. Course moderators will be available from September 18, 2023 – May 17, 2024.

*In order to earn credit for an online course, you need to be enrolled in one of our academic programs through Kathmandu University. You can apply for this through our MA prep or Visiting Student program. Applications for these programs are open from January 1 to July 1 and from October 1 to November 30.

RYI students who are already enrolled in a for-credit program at Kathmandu University and would like to receive credit for a For-Credit Moodle course within that program should register for the course through their RYI Portal account.
