Have you ever considered yourself a quiz master? Is it you who carries your team to victory every time there's a quiz night on? Want to represent the best university in the country and wow people with your epic knowledge levels? Read on, fair scholar - this post may be everything you've been waiting for! We are looking for 5 bright sparks who fancy themselves as legendary quiz masters to be part of the UC University Challenge team for 2014. University Challenge is a broadcast quiz game show where the eight universities from around the country will compete in a knowledge based quiz for the Challenge title. Four players from each university will compete with a reserve player from each team, who also acts as the team manager and substitute player. The game show will be broadcast on mainstream television later in the year and the five players will get flights and accommodation in early July for the filming of the show. This is a great opportunity to show case our best and brightest to the rest of the country and a chance for the individuals to get noticed as well. Ideally we are looking for the top five people with strong general knowledge and a few areas each of specific knowledge to compliment one another. Selection will be based on performance in the preliminary quiz which will take place at the University on Thursday 10 April at 5pm. If you’re interested in hearing more come along to the information session on Wednesday 2nd April at 12pm in the Undercroft Seminar Room. Looking forward to seeing you there!

On Friday it'll be that time of month again - the final Friday of the month! Head to the Shilling club, grab a drink, have a yarn to some cool people, vent about your research, and wind down for the week with the PGSA. Remember, PGSA members get drinks discounts between 5 - 7pm! It's also a perfect time to renew your membership for the year, and to pick up your mugs and stickers. The friendly exec will all be there, so come on down and say hi! They'll also provide a some chips or wedges for your enjoyment.
