One of our current Biology undergraduates will be part of the University’s 2011 University Challenge team.

Lewis Mills, a second year Biology student will be joined by three other Leeds students who hope to secure a victory. Lewis Mills told Leeds Student newspaper, “I’m elated! I’m thrilled to be involved and even more so to be the captain.”

The team are enthusiastic despite the quiz show only being won by a non-collegiate university only four times in fifteen years. Tim Mortimer, Leeds University Union Activities Officer said: “The team stand a good chance of succeeding because they are so focused.”
