KCLSU is holding auditions for KCL’s 2020 University Challenge Team

Can you take on Paxman?


KCL has had a poor track record when it comes to University Challenge -we have never won.

In both 2018 and 2019 King’s was knocked out in the first round and we haven’t reached the final since 1976.

If you want to turn this around and show off all your newfound knowledge gained at university, now is your chance.
