The inaugural THE Awards Asia 2019 attracted hundreds of entries from across the continent in five fiercely fought categories. We were delighted not only with the number of entries we received, but also their quality, which made the judging extremely difficult. Here we feature all the finalists and allow them to tell their own stories in the form of a poster which was exhibited at the event itself.
These shortlists include a number universities that are widely acknowledged to be among the best in the world, but stories of excellence and inspirational leadership in higher education are not exclusive to this group, and here you will find many fine examples of less high profile institutions doing incredible work across Asia, often in extraordinarily difficult circumstances.
Enjoy their stories.
