Information about Hindu Academy

Hindu Academy (previously known as Vivekananda Centre) has been operating in the UK for over 20 years. It is a non-sectarian body and aims to present a broad and comprehensive vision of Hinduism. The aims of the academy are:

  • Promoting structured study of Hinduism leading to GCSE, AS and A2 qualifications in Hinduism.
  • The academy operates nationally and runs classes in Hinduism at many cities and locations in London.
  • It interacts with schools in both the private and public sectors and helps with assemblies, seminars & discussions for sixth forms.
  • It also offers Hindu input towards PGCE courses at several British Universities.
  • The academy offers a pluralistic vision of religion which sits well with a science oriented (secular & humanist) world-view.
  • The academy continues to offer a rational contribution in the media on many contemporary issues relating to Hinduism (like Shambo the bull or Open air cremations).
