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 Oxford, and Trinity College, Cambridge.
Selected schools are able to send a few students to the conference, if they have students who fit the selection criteria.
