THE Awards 2016 winners

Those working in universities might feel they’re trapped in a game of Whack-a-Mole: for each challenge they overcome, several more pop up. And yet they clear every hurdle, in the process sharpening their focus and setting new standards. To reflect this, we have refreshed our awards categories. It is the adaptability, efficiency and creativity displayed by individuals, teams and institutions that Times Higher Education will honour when the 2017 THE Awards ceremony takes place on 30 November at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.
