Team OU on University Challenge – Monday 5 September!

For all you keen quiz show watchers, University Challenge is starting again tonight, Monday 29 August 2022, on BBC2 at 8.30pm (BST). Better yet, #TeamOU will be on the show next week, Monday 5 September! We wish them the best of luck, and know they’ll do themselves and all OU students proud.

Take a look at The Hoot for an introduction to the team and how they found the University Challenge experience.

We’ll also be live-tweeting the show on the night, so do join us in supporting the team!

Register your interest for the next series

The start of a new series also marks the time for applications for the next series. So if you weren’t one of the lucky five to make Team OU this year, why not give it a go for next year?

We’ll soon be looking for five OU student quizzers to be a part of Team OU 2023, to hopefully represent the Open University on University Challenge 2023-24.

If you love quizzing, or giving your best shot from the comfort of your sofa, why not give it a go?

As of 3 October 2022 applications are open for University Challenge 2023-24. You can apply here, by Sunday 30 October at 11pm (UK Time).

Good luck #TeamOU!
