    Well, I think every University gets invited to enter, but not all necessarily qualify for the televised rounds. So, I imagine they enter, but I can't recall having seen them on it in the last few years.

    Track down a Mr Darren McGuinness (not difficult). He tried to form a team last year or the year before. He'll get you a bunch of details.

    I'd love to represent QMUL on University Challenge. Sadly I know absolutely nothing, though.

    I've asked this question before, no one seems to know why we don't enter. You'd think that with the efforts to make the uni one of the top in the country this would be something they'd jump on for publicity.

    I've always thought this!

    There seems to be at least four of us here, why don't we do it next year? Apparently Granada send out invertations to every uni about christmas time.

    Any takers for setting up a team this year?

    an email was sent around for the qualifying round...they asked 40 questions ( i think they were set by the university challenge people) and the top10 were chosen. that is two teams of 4 + 1 reserve.

    the quality of applicants were very low...

    I think it's sooner as here in Leicester we have people trying to qualify to represent Leicester Uni on University Challenge over the next two days.

    I guess QMUL has decided to avoid a thrashing then. I don't know why we're not entering though, throw together a couple arts students and a couple science students and we could at least beat the University of East London

    Of course it could be to get a team for the qualifiers. Still try and form one, ask around!

    :laugh: What a coincidence that someone brought up University Challenge to me yesterday night? It'd be really good to see a QMUL University Challenge team.

    Problem solved! Turns out QM have been banned from University Challenge for 10 years after having a fight with the LSE. They are now allowed to participate...
