Join us as we celebrate the top performers in higher education

Virtual events

THE Awards

For over 15 years, the THE Awards have provided a moment to pause, reflect and celebrate the extraordinary achievements of individuals and teams working in UK universities – those in the professional services and leadership roles as well as academics and researchers.

Each year around 500 entrants from more than 100 institutions enter a range of categories that covers all aspects of university activity, and then in late November over 1200 people gather to celebrate the finalists’ achievements at a glittering ceremony – the biggest party in the UK higher education calendar.

In shining a spotlight on some of the very best success stories, we hope their work can be rolled out and scaled up so that others can benefit from the innovation, creativity and ingenuity on display. 

Times Higher Education Awards 2019

THE Awards Asia

Universities are extraordinary institutions that transform the lives of their students, produce research that changes the world, and deliver untold benefits to society and economies. At Times Higher Education, we want to recognise, support and incentivise this excellence.

One of the ways we do this is through the THE Awards Asia, which shines a spotlight on truly exceptional achievements.

Following its hugely successful launch in 2019, and with the enthusiasm and support from institutions across the continent, this event has quickly become as prestigious as the original UK THE Awards.

By recognising outstanding leadership and institutional performance across a range of categories, we hope to celebrate excellence in Asian higher education in all its diversity.

Wonderful programme and best opportunity to talk with world universities' leaders. The experience is irreplaceable.
