The rise of Asia’s universities has been one of the most significant developments in the recent history of higher education. The region has increased its representation from a quarter to a third of all institutions listed in the THE World University Rankings over the past five years.
The higher education sector has benefited from strong public investment, a commitment to internationalisation and strong cultural capital attached to the importance of universities.
But issues such as an uncertain geopolitical outlook, vast income differences across the region, and the economic and social aftershocks of a global pandemic will shape the next phase of Asia’s growth up to the midpoint of the 21st century.
The THE Asia Universities Summit 2023 brought together 500+ delegates to discuss what it will mean to be an Asia university in 2050 and whether there is such a thing as a distinctly “Asian” university in such an economically, culturally and socially diverse region.
The summit featured the exclusive live reveal of the THE Asia University Rankings 2023, accompanied by a detailed masterclass to explore the latest data and identify the best-performing institutions in the region.
The summit also hosted the THE Awards Asia 2023 ceremony. Now in their fifth year, the awards offer a major international platform to recognise outstanding leadership and institutional performance, and to celebrate the continent's higher education excellence in all its diversity.
