University Challenge, do you want to continue UC’s success?


Last year’s UC team won New Zealand academia’s top trivia quiz show, University Challenge for the second year since the show returned to New Zealand screens in 2014.

Team captain Stewart Alexander, Liam Boardman, Catherine O’Donnell-Jackways, Alexander Amies and Jack Hayes won by a convincing 210 – 90 over the University of Waikato team in the final.

We want to continue the trend this year, by sending our best team to compete.  Do you think you have what it takes? Come along to the Info and Preliminary Quiz Night, Wednesday 24 May, 6pm at LAWS108.

If you’re a genius at general knowledge, everyone wants you on their team for pub quizzes, you know your Shakespeare inside out, or maybe you’ve just got lightning fast reflexes, we want you! You don’t need any quizzing experience, and the team is open to all students, from first year to postgrad.

As part of the team you’ll be training with other like-minded people, before taking it to the other Universities in the filmed competition. Flights, food, and accommodation will all be paid for!

Make this year your year, become apart of a once in a lifetime, unforgettable experience.

Check out the Uni Challenge Facebook page, see last year’s team, watch some short videos and read about our success.
