vaheguru ji ka khalsa vaheguru ji ki fateh

Some Sevadaars are putting together a University Guide for prospective Sikh students in the UK to provide information on various Universities across the country from a Sikhi perspective.

If you are a student in the UK at any University please can you take the time to fill out the questionnaire below as fully as possible and paste the replies in this thread.

If you have any questions or suggestions please post them in this thread or email santsipahi@hotmail.co.uk.

Hopefully this guide will include information on local Gurdwaras, youth programmes and Sikh Societies. As we all know there are many resources out there that provide academic information, but it would be nice to have information from a Sikhi-perspective too.

Thank you for your help : )

Thanks for your comments.

If you've ever studied in a city where there are no fellow Sikhs you'll know that returning to Sangat can have a tremendously uplifting effect on your spirits. That question is simply to let people know if there are any Sikhs at all, and how big or small the community is in a particular city.

Once again there are many resources, websites and contacts which provide information on academia, education, research and the cost of living. The objective of this guide is to provide extra information from a Sikhi-perspective.

The sevadaars are not saying that these issues are the most important things about choosing a University.
