Win a two-week European tour with Topdeck Travel

iQuiz is a students-only competition masterminded exclusively by i, the concise quality newspaper. Teams of the brightest and best students from all over the country compete against each other in a battle of wits, grit and bottomless general knowledge for their chance to win a 14-day trip visiting seven European countries with Topdeck Travel.

Join us on Tuesday 19 November for a night of fun with your friends – and a serious test of your knowledge of bizarre trivia. The Independent’s resident master of arcane knowledge, Simon O’Hagan, has set a gruelling quiz featuring all types of topics, including recent news (hint - read the i paper!). The iQuiz is free to enter.

The best team of four in each city on the night will answer its way to the iQuiz final in February, and maybe even bag themselves that fantastic trip which will see them visiting France, Switzerland, Italy, the Vatican City, Austria, Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium.

Speak to your university Student Brand Ambassador for details on how to register. You can find their details here
