LONDON, U.K. : In the United Kingdom students can study Hinduism in schools and gain accreditation that can help them apply for places at top universities. 16 to 18-year-olds can sit for Advanced level examinations in Hinduism. The results count in their favor when they apply for university places.

Each year the Hindu Academy trains perhaps the largest number of candidates sitting for these Hinduism examinations. The advanced level specifications require study of Patanjali Yoga Sutras, Kathopanishad and part of the Bhagavad Gita. Candidates are also required to look at the contemporary figureheads of Hinduism like Sri Ramakrishna and Swami Vivekananda and their impact on the evolving face of Hinduism.
