OCHS Student portal

The OCHS student portal is a place where we have collected all information for students in one place. You can find information about lectures and teaching, bursaries and scholarships, Wednesday Lunches, and much more. 



Thank you for all the opportunities to increase my exposure and broaden my horizons. Thank you for the bursaries and scholarships. The centre provided me access to so many wonderful books and smiling, intelligent, and helpful people. It can be overlooked in comparison to the other aspects, but the centre simply also serves as nice space to study and even warm my food in the microwave.

Working with Gavin Flood gave me a stupendously large perspective on Indian traditions and world philosophy, for he relentlessly allowed me - as his doctorate student - to bloom my full creativity and research the very themes I was interested in.

As a visiting student, my time at the Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies has been unique. The OCHS not only guided and supported me in my studies, it helped me find my place in academia.
In Denmark we have a word, ‘dannelse’, similar to the German word ‘bildung’: a personal education where you learn character and personality as much as you learn your subject. This is exactly what I find so special about the OCHS – that they focus on the individual dannelse of the person and that they are able to secure that through a highly professional and competent centre.
