Hindu Adviser: Ruchika Julka

Ruchika Julka is our Hindu Adviser. She works for International Student Support at Sheffield Hallam University.

"Hi, I'm Ruchika Julka and I work for International Student Support at Sheffield Hallam University. Having been brought up in a robust Hindu household of New Delhi, I actively practice Hinduism both as a religion and a way of life.

"I moved to the UK in Sept 2005 to pursue postgraduate study and came to work in Sheffield in the summer of 2007.

"I have developed and maintained close links with Indian and Hindu communities in Sheffield, since first moving here, and would be happy to provide advice/guidance on matters relating to the Hindu faith to any students or members of staff of this university."
