University Challenge

We exist first and foremost in order to organise Swansea University's attempt to field a team in the TV show "University Challenge", and to ensure that we do Swansea proud by getting as far as possible on the show if we succeed in that attempt.

We also attend pub quizzes regularly in order to keep our knowledge sharp and socialise. We alternate each week between the Rhyddings and the Uplands Tavern.

The Rhyddings pub quiz takes place at 9pm on Mondays. Free portions of chilli con carne are served to all quiz takers at the half-way point. Afterwards, if time allows and if people are up for it, we will meet in Fiction where our society cards give us free entry on Mondays before 11:30pm.

Our Rhyddings socials this semester will be on the 19th of October, 2nd of November, 16th of November, and the 30th of November.

The Uplands Tavern pub quiz takes place also at 9pm but on Wednesdays. We don't have any society freebies for Wednesdays but if there's demand we will meet up in town afterwards anyway.

Our Uplands socials will happen every Wednesday the week after a Rhyddings social.

Tryouts for the show are being organised (see events) and these will be open to the entire student population. The team will be selected based on the score in the tryouts and also on breadth of expertise. In order to accept our offer of a place on the team after having done well in the tryouts, you will be required to join the society.

If you have any questions please email us at or contact us on facebook or twitter.
