University Challenge – the British quiz show that will undoubtably outlive even Paxman himself. Watched and loved by all generations, it’s impossible for students to watch it in a family setting, as every parent assumes you can (or should be able to) answer every question related to your course. But now is your chance to put your intellect and general knowledge to the test…

The Guild will be hosting open trials to find the University of Liverpool’s new University challenge team. Going head to head against other Universities from around the UK, you could be in for a chance of participating in one of Britain’s oldest and most popular TV quiz shows, and meeting the quizmaster himself – Jeremy Paxman. If you’ve got a knack for general knowledge, or see yourself joining the likes of Oscar Powell in the University Challenge wall of fame, why not give it a go?

How to get involved:

University Challenge is open to current undergraduates and postgraduates, students on both full-time and part-time courses, and overseas students studying at a UK university. 

On the day of your trial, you will be given access to an online quiz which will feature a variety of subjects and general knowledge – anything from science to pop music. The quiz does not have to be completed within a restricted time and students are not expected to know everything, just to try their best!

Trial dates:
