The complementary subject Tibetan consists of three language modules (Tibetan I-III). From the first semester onwards, the Institute for Oriental and Asian Studies (IOA) teaches both the oral language and the Tibetan script. From the second semester onwards, the classical written Tibetan language is added. The students learn to express themselves independently in Tibetan and to read, understand and reflect light texts independently. In addition, they acquire cultural communicative skills that enable them to study interdisciplinary topics.

The IOA organizes excursions and a Tibet Colloquium, to which the IOA invites scientists from ongoing projects in Tibet-related research to exchange ideas.
