Have you ever imagined winning £6,000 funding for your club or society?

Take part in our Opportunity Challenge and you could do just that. Go head-to-head with teams from the UK's top universities in our general knowledge quiz-style competition - demonstrate your intellectual prowess and you could be crowned national champions with prizes to match.

Our Opportunity Challenge gives student clubs and societies the chance to compete against each other with financial funding up for grabs to help support your club or society. We'll run separate university heats with the winners of each receiving a prize of £1,000. These teams will then enter the national final which will be held at an exclusive event in PwC's More London office to battle it out for an additional prize of £5,000.

We're looking for one team per club or society of between 2 - 3 people. Could your team be crowned national champions, reaping the rewards for your club or society? Previous winners have included teams from Strathclyde, Manchester, Belfast and Bristol Universities. Could you and your team be this year’s winners?
