WUDC 2012: Main Semifinals - 3 Oxford, 5 Rest of the World

University of Oxford Union's Debating Chamber 
There is no debate. University of Oxford towers above the rest in varsity debating. Almost 400 teams from around 200 schools joined the 2012 World Universities Debating Championships but 3 out of 8 spots in tomorrow's semifinals went to one society -- Oxford Union.

Reigning champion Monash University from Australia earned two slots while the remainder went to University of Sydney, Stanford University and University College Dublin. Of course, there is a possibility that the final would be Oxford-free but few would place such a bet. The semifinalists include Euro 2011 champions and WUDC 2011 finalists Oxford A (Ben Woolgar & Hugh Burns) who topped this year's tab.

SF 1: #1 Oxford A v #8 Stanford A v #28 Monash B v #29 Oxford C
SF 2: #2 Oxford B v #3 Monash C v #11 UC Dublin L&H A v #18 Sydney B
