Opportunity challenge

Congratulations to the University of Strathclyde Motorsport Society who were our Opportunity Challenge 2018-2019 winners!

We'll soon be launching our Opportunity Challenge 2019 - 2020.

Please register your interest by completing our form and watch this space for further details that will be revealed shortly.

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 UK 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 regional heats across the UK, 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 this year, reaping the rewards for your club or society? This year the University of Strathclyde Motorsport were the national winners. Could you and your team be next year's winners?

Register your interest now to take part in our Opportunity Challenge for 2019-20. Please note you only need to make one entry per team when registering your interest.
