Long-time practitioners of Ayurveda often suggest formal training is the best way to begin its study.
Many other Ayurvedic colleges in India offer long and short-term courses. These include diploma courses, degree courses as well as Certificate courses in Ayurvedic Science.
For Indians, the most traditional route for Ayurvedic studies is to go for a Bachelor’s of Ayurvedic Medicine & Surgery (BAMS). Other colleges also offer supporting degrees. These range from pre-Ayurvedic courses to certificate courses in Ayurvedic medicine.
For this degree program, you will have to give the All India Pre-Medical/Pre-Dental Entrance Exam. You must have studied Physics, Chemistry, Biology (and sometimes, Sanskrit) in your 12th grade.
