The University of Kelaniya, formerly the Vidyalankara Pirivena which was established in 1875, is the place par excellence for Pali and Buddhist Studies in Sri Lanka.  It has maintained its reputation for more than forty years, under the present name, among the other universities in the Island.  Having a rich heritage, twelve years ago, the university started a diploma programme in Pali and Buddhist Studies, to impart the necessary knowledge to persons who wish to understand Buddhism and improve their knowledge in Pali language as well as in related subjects.  We are pleased to announce the successful progress of the programme which provides an opportunity for hundreds of students to obtain Diploma Certificates with extension knowledge.

For international students Diploma, special and general degree courses have been introduced by department of  pali and Buddhist studies. The courses in Pali, Buddhist Culture and Buddhist Philosophy are open to international students also.
