OCHS Continuing Education:
transforms young scholars into teachers who make difficult ideas accessible, brings Oxford standards to a global audience,
contributes to OCHS finances, helping to make all the other work of the OCHS possible – this then further feeds the CED.
The best driver of revenue has been the production of new courses to satisfy our returning students.
“The OCHS is a very exciting development for the future of Indian culture. It is helping the world reflect on Indian identity and perspectives. Any successful initiative is a team effort, so we should all get behind this centre giving it every support we can.”
