Represent us in University Challenge this year. Can you take on Paxman?

Can you take on Paxman?


Do you think you have what it takes to take on Paxman’s questions? Well now is to put this to the test.

We are looking for a team of 5 to represent Newcastle University. To find the winning team we are running a number of trials, these will be a combination of in-person and virtual events.

  1. Monday 16th November 3pm-4pm
  2. Thursday 19th November 2pm-3pm



There are two in person trials taking place in Venue here at NUSU. To register for these please email with your name, student number, and which trial you would like to attend.

Please note that to attend an in person session masks must be worn (unless exempt), social distancing will be in place and you must sanitise your hands before entering.

If you are unable to make the present in person sessions, then you can attend a one on one zoom session. If you’d like to sign up for this, email who will organise a slot for you.
