Your Union is proud to be hosting the official University Challenge tryouts that will determine the University of St Andrews’ team for next year’s competition.

The first round of tryouts will be held on Thursday 2 November, Friday 3 November, and Saturday 4 November from 2pm-3pm in the Large Rehearsal Room (top floor of the Union). You only need to attend one of these three sessions.

The first round will consist of 60 questions on various topics straight from the makers of the show, and the students with the highest scores will be invited to attend the second round of tryouts on Friday 10 November and Sunday 12 November from 12pm-3pm in the Large Rehearsal Room (top floor of the Union).

Everyone is welcome to try out; however you must be a matriculated student of the University of St Andrews during filming (happening in 2018). Regardless of your degree subject, whether you’re an undergraduate or postgraduate, full-time or part-time student, we want you to try out and represent the University of St Andrews on the big screen!
