What a big couple of weeks it has been for University Challenge! We are now pleased announce the 2015 University Challenge team.

From a preliminary quiz held two weeks ago, James Addington, UCSA CEO Dave Hawkey and Deputy Vice-Chancellor Academic Dr Hamish Cochrane selected and interviewed ten candidates.

From there, the Team to represent the University of Canterbury in the knowledge-based quiz show was selected.

Congratulations to the new UC team!
