QuizSoc is a society devoted to quizzing in all of its forms, with a particular dedication to the team buzzer style seen on the BBC Two Show University Challenge.

We sometimes run a parallel quizzing session in weeks where there is high demand for a less serious style of team quizzing known as ‘League of London’, involving quick fire questions.

If you wish to enrich your academic knowledge, enhance your skills of recall and have a lot of fun in the process, this is the society you need!


The rooms in which we will be meeting for buzzer sessions from 6.30pm are as follows:

Semester 2 2018 

Wednesdays - 17th January, 14th February, 28th February, 14th March, 28th March - G.01 and G.02 in 50 George Square

Thursdays - 25th January, 7th February, 21st February, 7th March, 21st March and 4th April - G.01 and G.02 in 50 George Square


After our buzzer sessions we then go to a pub quiz. Typically Frankenstein’s on a Wednesday and The Southsider or City Café on a Thursday.

Once a month we host our own pub quiz with questions written on a variety of topics ranging from General Knowledge, Sciences, Humanities, as well as Music and Picture Rounds. Why not bring some friends and come along?

We also provide training for prospective University Challenge contestants and competitors at a number of untelevised buzzer quizzing tournaments across the UK.

Following on from the success of our first ‘Scot Bowl’ tournament last year, where we were delighted to welcome teams from Belfast, Warwick, St Andrews and other universities, we are pleased to announce that we will be hosting our second ‘Scot Bowl’ tournament at Edinburgh University this March. Keep your eyes peeled for more updates!
