Set in 1985, working-class student Brian Jackson (McAvoy) navigates his first year at Bristol University.
Rebecca Hall and Benedict Cumberbatch went on to star opposite each other in Ford Madox Ford's Parade's End.

During the 'University Challenge' competition, Brian answers a question with "Calcium Sulphite" and the question-master says he gave the correct answer of "Calcium Sulphate" (a different compound). An alternative interpretation is that because Brian comes from Essex, he would pronounce "sulphate" like "sulphite".
During the opening credits the theme music from the BBC program University Challenge (1962), which the title of the film refers to, is played.
