    • How to request Institute materials?

      All orders for training institute materials must be placed using the available forms (click on your region - either 'England', 'Northern Ireland', 'Scotland', 'Wales' or 'International') and will be checked on behalf of the (relevant) Training Institute Board. If you are paying for the materials, you should receive an invoice within 2 working-days after placing your order.

      Training Institute materials are made available fully subsidised for UK addresses. If you live in the UK, you may also choose to make a contribution to their costs. If you live outside of the UK, only published materials in English are available for ordering through the website. Please contact your training institute board or National Spiritual Assembly for information on how to procure pre-published materials. Note that Bahá’í Books UK only ships orders weighing more than 2 kg outside the UK. See here for shipping rates.
