Nan Tien Institute (NTI), located on Australia's picturesque South Coast of Sydney, is Australia's first Institute of higher learning grounded in Buddhist wisdom and values.
This innovative learning environment has grown from a belief that education is an essential part of a life-long quest for knowledge, skills and wisdom. Our vision and mission is to provide a place for the exchange of western and oriental arts and culture, and to broaden students' knowledge and perspectives through subjects covering the arts, philosophy, humanities, business and science.

NTI offers an education with a strong foundation focused on multicultural and practical life applications.
