About THE Awards Asia


Following 14 years as a landmark event in the UK higher education calendar, 2019 saw us take the prestigious THE Awards overseas for the first time. The response to THE Awards Asia from across the continent far exceeded our expectations, with the number of entrants, their wide geographical spread and the brilliant stories they told (not to mention the atmosphere everyone generated during the spectacular ceremony itself at the Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi) making them a huge success.

This year THE Awards Asia has twice as many categories, giving more opportunities for institutions – whether they be household names or those working near-miracles away from the spotlight – to tell the world about the transformational work they do. They also offer a major international platform to recognise outstanding leadership and institutional performance, and celebrate higher education excellence in all of its diversity.

The glittering THE Awards Asia 2020 ceremony will take place at Hotel Nagoya Castle in Japan during the THE Awards Universities Summit. We look forward to reading your entries!
