New visions of university excellence

17 November 2020

At this period of profound transformation for higher education, THE, the global authority on university leadership and performance, invites you to explore new visions of higher education excellence and examples of outstanding strategies from across Asia. We will celebrate the achievements of over 60 institutions, reveal the 10 we have judged to be winners in the THE  Awards Asia 2020, and ask how they are approaching an uncertain future.

This special event will celebrate the holistic excellence of the Asian higher education sector, and recognise the hard work, passion and ambition of faculty and administrators who are achieving significant goals often in very challenging environments.

THE  Awards Asia are not connected to rankings. We invited every higher education institution in fifty countries and territories across Asia to share with us the best examples from the last twelve months of their strategies, their innovation, their projects to improve research and teaching, to support their students and become better international partners. At this event we will reveal the 10 best projects that inspire us, and can inspire the whole world.


Virtual platform

The event will be facilitated by our new immersive virtual platform. Our online environment enables you to connect with delegates from around the world, access essential content and create new partnerships through this time of global separation.
