Recommended Posts

Waheguru ji ka khalsa, waheguru ji ke fateh!!!

I just got accepted to University of Oxford, King's College,and University of Warwick for a semester abroad in England. I'll be there for the spring 2005 semester (Jan - Aprilish).

I have to decide which school to choose- as of right i am leaning towards Oxford, primarily for the brand name....

What university would the sangat from england rec, and Why.

Is there anyone here that knows, went, or goes to Oxford that can help me out?

If your from england PLEASE PLEASE PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEE PM me or EMAIL ME!!!...I wnat to meet sikhs from across the globe and this is the perfect opportunity!!

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!! rolleyes.gif

Warwick is highly rated and is known for turning out people ready for the real world. Oxford has that reputation but I know people who have gone there for a semster or two and just not fitted in with the rich crowd.

Things have changed, so just go where your heart desires.

as a uni student myself studying overseas, congrats on this awesome opportunity.... :lol: do cherish all moments you spend overseas.... i suggest you pick the uni based on the credibility they have for the course you're doing. Let us know which you pick....haha but if i were you, I'd choose to goto Oxford. :(

Spoke to a Veer ji from Uk who's in Uni right know, this is what he said -

Warwick uni = top in Maths

Oxford Uni = famous for its name - it isn't necessarily the number 1 uni... buts its name is top

Warwick = near coventry... so u got Coventry Gurdwaras and the Sangat from there

Oxford = a lot of international students... not much of a Sikh Sangat... weekly Diwaan is held at Cheney School in Oxford, every Wednesday (keertan, and langar)

King's = largest Sikh Soc

There are 3 campuses

Depending on waht u want to study

King's is convenient for Sangat... got access to King's simran and sikh soc events.... then u got other close by unis and u can be part of their sikh socs.... southall is 15 mins from Paddington on Train and Hounslow is 35 mins from Waterloo

so u get access to Sangat, Gurdware and stuff

whether u get apne in halls or on ur course is pot luck... but even if u dont then u still get to meet apne at sikh soc and stuff

bhull chukk maaf

President: Ryan Singh

Email: oxfordsikh@hotmail.com

Gurdwara: Weekly Diwaan, Every Sunday - Japji Sahib Da Paat, Keertan & Langar

Because Oxford doesnt have a Gurdwara, they hold the Diwaan in a school Hall. The address for where the Diwaan takes place:

Oxford Sri Guru Singh Sabha Gurdwara,

Cheney School Main Hall,

Gipsy Lane Headington,

Oxford Ox3 7QH

Also the Oxford Gurdwara has a website: www.oxfordsikhs.com

I live in Banbury (25 minutes on train from Oxford). Any help or advise, please let me know.
