Over 140 teams registered in the Code4life University Challenge 2017 and 444 students across 60 universities competed in the National Challenge. The winners will be visiting the Roche Headquarters in Basel, Switzerland in May 2018 as part of their prize.

The University Challenge allowed students to find out how coding is solving problems in healthcare.

The Code4life University Challenge was both a National and a Global Challenge for students attending university in one of 5 countries (Germany, Poland, Spain, Switzerland and USA).

In the National Challenge, students from the same university formed teams of three and tested their coding skills against other student teams in their country. Participants could major in any field of study but had to be able to code in at least one of 25 coding languages (C++, Java, Go, Ruby, C#, F#, Javascript, PHP, Rust, Python3, OCaml, Dart, Scala, Python, Haskell, Perl, C, VB.NET, ObjectiveC, Swift3, Lua, Bash, Groovy, Clojure) allowed in the Code4life game.

Participants had the chance to win many exciting prizes in the National Challenge and the winning teams continued with the Global Challenge where the grand prize was a visit to Roche headquarters in Basel, Switzerland in January 2018.
