Nerd Varsity 2024

19th February - 10th March

Welcome to Nerd Varsity! This is a multi-society event for several of the nerdier societies compete in a wide range of events to win money for their chosen charities! With over 15 events, including fighting with lightsabers, making short films, a boardgame tournament, and loads more, there's bound to be loads of events you'll want to compete in!

You can compete for your favourite society, or take part as a Challenger instead! All the money we raise goes to the winning society's charity, which includes both tickets and merch! So if you want to grab a t-shirt with your society’s logo, you can be sure it’s going to a good cause! Whether it’s playing Mario Kart or overseeing a RISK game, painting miniatures or acting in a film, we hope to see you there!
