World-class universities in the face of adversity

5 August 2020

Thank you to everyone who joined us at THE Live ANZ.

The event brought together experts from across higher education to address the challenges that are arising in the wake of Covid-19, and to examine how universities in Australia and New Zealand can emerge from the adversity to remain world-class.

The event also featured an exclusive preview of the THE World University Rankings 2021 a month ahead of their global publication to give a frank analysis of the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats facing the Antipodean university system, analysing unpublished key data that will feed into the 2021 edition.
