International Sanskrit Examination Resource

Welcome to the International Sanskrit Examination Resource (ISER)

This site provides Sanskrit resources and practical support for all students worldwide who wish to study Sanskrit in a systematic, efficient and enjoyable way.   The courses are aimed at helping students to understand simple Sansrit sentences as well as the depth of the language. A special benefit is the reading and understanding of original texts. 

The courses are ideal for preparing for the Cambridge International Sanskrit examinations provided by the University of Cambridge International Examinations (CIE).  These exams are designed primarily for students of 16 - 18 years of age, but are also perfectly suited to more mature students.  The qualifications are recognised by universities world-wide.
