Our programme of worldwide activity and regular regional summits bring together global thought leaders across higher education, research, industry and government to share best practice and innovation in the development and leadership of world-class universities and research.



Our focused forums bring together senior leaders from across higher education, research, industry and policymaking to share data, best practice and innovative ideas about the future of universities. Our regional events are a chance to dive deep into that region's higher education.

Digital Universities

Our Digital Universities series convenes higher education leaders, industry partners and policymakers to address the key challenges and opportunities of digital-first higher education and showcase tools, technologies and talent to accelerate education innovation.

THE Live


This series consists of buzzy discussions, debates, workshops, and roundtables on the most pressing issues challenging academic and professional staff and leaders at universities right now. Discover the latest news and trends from experts and key influencers in the sector, and hear from decision-makers across higher education, government and NGOs.

THE Awards


Established in 2005, our THE Awards series (or the 'Oscars of higher education' as it is now widely known) comprises landmark events in the higher education calendar. Free to enter, and judged by a panel of sector experts, they shine a light on the exceptional work taking place in higher education. Hundreds of institutions enter, and winners vary from world-renowned highly ranked institutions to those less well-known and operating in uniquely challenging circumstances, and every shape and size in between.

Our webinars bring together university leadership and industry voices to provide you with regular regional insights, models of best practice and thought leadership content. We also regularly run rankings masterclasses with the THE data team to explore new methodologies, submission guidelines and consultancy assessments.
