Quiz: Can you match the uni with its Latin motto?

I definitely can’t

Let’s be real, no one actually knows the motto of any uni, let alone the one they attend. And shock, it’s not just Oxbridge who have them. Their meanings tend to have few obvious connections to the places themselves, which begs the question of how they were decided upon and why they remain today. However, you’ll find that some of them do (very) vaguely reflect an aspect of the uni they belong to, meaning that this quiz might not be quite as difficult as it sounds.

Test your knowledge, or how good you are at guesswork, and try to complete these eight questions. Honestly, if you get above six that’s a bit keen and I’d really like to know why you know your uni mottos so well.

Take this Latin motto quiz to find out how well you really know your uni… and Latin.
