Frequently asked questions


THE  Live brings together delegates from across different specialisms of the higher education ecosystem, academic and administrative, to engage with the nominees from our prestigious THE Awards.

This two-day event provides a platform to scrutinise university leadership from the UK and abroad, debate the facts behind the headlines of how our sector is described in the mainstream media, debate the top stories and significant challenges for the sector and gain exclusive access to advice, practical discussions and case studies with our expert team of journalists, data scientists and award-judges.

The event is a chance for the sector to celebrate UK higher education’s myriad of strengths and help universities to tell their story to the world at a period where the UK’s global reputation is in the middle of significant change.

At this year’s THE  Live, the UK’s must-attend higher education event, we will be discussing the most pressing issues facing UK universities: Britain’s place in the global higher education system, the state of the UK HE market, financial challenges facing the sector and how to improve your workplace culture for staff and early-career researchers.
