Are you our next University Challenge star?

Ever hummed along to the string quartet, gazed into Jeremy Paxman’s eyes and got a bit too excited as you tally up your (admittedly impressive) score? You could be one of our next University Challenge contestants. 

If you’ve ever fancied yourself as a University Challenge competitor, now’s your chance to make that dream a reality. The last time the University of Leeds reached the televised round was back in 2012, so we’re on the lookout for our next team of academic Olympians to take part in the prestigious BBC quiz show.
