Join us as we celebrate the top performers in higher education

THE Awards

For over 15 years, the THE Awards have provided a moment to pause, reflect and celebrate the extraordinary achievements of individuals and teams working in UK universities in professional services and leadership roles as well as academics and researchers.

Each year, over 100 institutions enter a range of categories covering all aspects of university activity, and in late November over 1200 people gather to celebrate the winners’ achievements at a glittering ceremony – the biggest party in the UK higher education calendar.

In shining a spotlight on some of the very best success stories, we hope their work can be rolled out and scaled up so that others can benefit from the innovation, creativity and ingenuity on display.

The Awards 2022: Highlights

THE Awards Asia

Universities are extraordinary institutions that transform the lives of their students, produce research that changes the world, and deliver untold benefits to society and economies. At THE, we want to recognise, support and incentivise this excellence – THE Awards Asia shines a spotlight on truly exceptional achievements.

Following its hugely successful launch in 2019, and with the enthusiasm and support from institutions across the continent, this event has quickly become as prestigious as the original THE Awards in the UK.

By recognising outstanding leadership and institutional performance across a range of categories, we hope to celebrate excellence in Asian higher education in all its diversity.
