Raising your university's profile

THE's events are global gatherings for outstanding thought leaders to learn, network and share knowledge and experience. We bring together university and academic leaders with politicians and business chiefs to share best practices and innovations in the development of world-class universities.

Since 2013, THE has hosted some of the world's top universities and brought together thought leaders from across six continents and more than 130 countries.

Headed by the flagship annual THE World Academic Summit, our events encompass a regular series of prestigious, regionally focused and bespoke thematic events.

Host partners enjoy unparalleled opportunities to:

  • engage with leadership teams, faculties, and senior international decision-makers
