We all know you are exceptionally smart. But it is about time to prove yourself during the ultimate digital Hanze Pubquiz Battle. Join the intellectual battlefield together with friends, your student union, or colleagues and prove once and for all who has the biggest brain of the Hanze University of Applied Sciences during this epic battle. Buy your ticket, enroll your team and join on Monday 14th of December from 20.30 till 22.30!
This event is not only organized to boost gigantic egos. The Hanze pub quiz Battle is a charity event: with your participation, you are supporting higher education in developing countries.
The raised funds will go to the Hanze University Foundation, they are committed to making higher education accessible for everyone in various countries in Africa. Due to COVID-19, many families have lost their incomes and are no longer able to afford the tuition fees, or they don’t have the financial or digital means to follow education online remotely.
Hanze University Foundation, Hanze Cultuur en Debat en Stichting Studenten Activiteiten join forces together for the Hanze community: Staff members and students! Share your talent, move the world!
Together in dark times & local businesses
In addition to supporting our colleagues and fellow students in various countries in Africa, we also support local businesses in Groningen. Allow yourself a treat and give yourself some brain food during the quiz and pre-order a snack plate!
Early bird deal: the first 50 people to snag a snack plate get it for a reduced price of €3, instead of €15. They can be picked up on Monday, December 14th at Zernike or Grand Café Groningen. (The full price is sponsored to support our local Grand Café).
We would also like to pay extra attention to the growing feeling of isolation and loneliness among students, while the month of December is all about spending time together, most people are more lonely than ever. With the pub quiz we like to bring together online as many people as possible!

More about Back on Track scholarships
For many students in developing countries it is no option to return to school or to continue education online. Not because of the continuing lockdown or health issues, but because of the economic crisis. During the lockdown the money reserved for tution fees has been used for basic needs and there is no money to go back to school.
To support the partner institutions andtheir staff members and students, we are offering Back on Track scholarships. For €500 a student can study for one more semester and the family has time to “get back on track” and save money for the following semester. The scholarships are available for students who have started in the past two years and are unable to finalize their studies without the scholarship.
