University Challenge - The Professionals - 2003


Here are the results of the first ever series of University Challenge featuring teams representing an occupation, and not an academic institution, and thus for the first time opening its doors to non-students. The series was shown on Mondays 8/8:30pm on BBC2, between the 7th April and 8th September 2003. Unlike the student series, only the top eight highest-scoring winners qualified for the quarter finals, becoming a straight knockout from then on.
