The Sarah College is also involved in a number of outreach activities besides its regular courses, which are benefit to the Tibetan Diaspora community and other interested groups.
In-service training and a variety of workshopsare run at the college with teachers attending from other regions in India, Nepal and Bhutan. This training provides valuable instruction in teaching methodology and can last from 3 weeks to 2 months. We also host in-service training for the Central Tibetan Administration employees to upgrade their Tibetan language and literature skills.
The college now has a full-fledged training building financed by Office of His Holiness the Dalai Lama to accommodate more trainings, workshops and seminars. It has 18 double rooms with attached bathrooms with hot shower, separate kitchen, dinning hall, classroom and a hall. Any Tibetan government or non-government organisation intending to conduct workshops or short-term trainings are most welcome. An advance booking is necessary for the training building.
ONE-MONTH INTENSIVE TIBETAN LANGUAGE PROGRAM for the Tibetan students attending Indian Universities conducted in May/June every year as per the request from the Office of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. The duration of the course is one month and normally from mid May to mid June. The course offer Tibetan grammar, history, poetry, calligraphy, Buddhist Philosophy and traditional performing arts. Students can apply by writing an application, two passport size photos and copy of your college identity card.
A SIX MONTH INTENSIVE TIBETAN LANGUAGE COURSE in the Tibetan history, Poetry, Buddhism, Tibetan grammar, spelling and calligraphy is also offered to the Tibetan Medical students with effect from July 2007. The TMAI requested Sarah College to accommodate these students because all the medical text are in Tibetan language and without good background in Tibetan language it was found very difficult for medical students to study.
