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 begin by helping students to understand simple Sanskrit sentences, and then lead step by step to the reading and understanding of original texts. A special benefit is the discovery of the depth of meaning available through the Sanskrit language

The courses are ideal preparation for the Sanskrit examinations provided by the University of Cambridge International Examinations.  These examinations are designed to ensure a good level of Sanskrit language ability. They are 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.
