Oxbridge Access Conference 2023
The Sikh Societies of Oxford and Cambridge Universities run an annual access conference, to help, support and encourage young Singhs and Kaurs to get into some of the top universities in the country.
This year, the conference will be on 4th November 2023, and it will be hosted at St Catharine’s College, Cambridge (CB2 1RL).
About the Event
The aim of this event is to encourage Sikh students in Year 11/12 (England and Wales), S5 (Scotland), or Year 13 (Northern Ireland) who show a strong academic ability to consider applying to some of the top universities. Current Sikh undergraduates coming from similar educational backgrounds will provide general information and advice about the “Oxbridge” experience. This will include a a series of talks, workshops and a Q&A panel. This event is organised by current undergraduates and members of the Oxford University Sikh Society, and the Cambridge University Sikh Society, with guidance and support from full time staff members from St Catharine’s College, Cambridge.
Students can sign up via the button below. The deadline for applying is 6th October.
