Which Dutch university has the brightest students?  Eight teams will battle each other in the National University Quiz competition which will be broadcasted on TV (NPO2 channel) starting in September. The Erasmus University is counting to be one of the eight universities sending their smartest students to compete in the show.

Marcel Latupeirissa, who works for the marketing and communication department at the Erasmus University, is the team’s contact person. The team will have their first meeting on Monday to get to know each other and prepare for the admission test on Friday. The team is composed by six motivated and talented students, three starters and three reserves, in case the starters students fall sick. Because of the variety of the questions, members of the team are expected to nurture broad interests.

The final eight teams will compete against each other from July 12 to July 16 while the cameras will be rolling to record the competition. The show will be broadcasted in September for a total of fifteen episodes. By the end of the week, the final eight teams should be revealed and we’ll find out if your fellow students will become famous.

The names of the team members haven’t been disclosed yet, supposedly they will be whether the EUR team manages to qualify for the recorded final. If you are participating, please let us know.
