The Final 8!
As we approach the big day, the final 8 have been selected. With the good news for a select few, we are still held in the dark about who has been given the opportunity of a life time. What we do know, is what universities are being represented. 2 from Robert Gorden’s Aberdeen, 2 from Sheffield Hallam, 1 from Leeds Beckett University, 1 from Oxford Brookes, 1 from Bournemouth and 1 more from Bad Honnef, Germany.
From the lucky few that remain, we wish you the best of luck.
