Students must be currently enrolled as students at the university for which they are playing. Teams with older, graduate students have traditionally performed better on the show, but undergraduates have definitely shown that age and maturity are not requirements to win.

The television series "University Challenge" is a quiz-style game show that has been on BBC since 1962. The show has continued until the present day, although it did have a hiatus from 1987 until 1994. The purpose of the show is that two teams, each from different universities, play each other in head-to-head competitions.
