The THE Awards are widely recognised as the Oscars of the higher education sector.
Each year we attract hundreds of entries that exemplify the talent, dedication and innovation of individuals and teams across all aspects of university life, showing us countless reasons why our institutions continue to prosper.
And after our esteemed judging panel has toiled over this treasure trove of excellence, our awards evening – where well over a thousand people gather for dinner in London’s largest available room – gives us the perfect opportunity to celebrate and reflect on the extraordinary breadth and depth of our higher education sector.
