The QS in conversation seminar themed “University Rankings and International Migrant Scholars” successfully concluded on 7 February 2018 in London, UK. We would to express our sincere thanks and appreciation to all delegates and speakers who have contributed to the success of this event!
Global university rankings are playing an increasingly role in shaping higher education’s role and purpose. Its dominance has arisen as a result of the ongoing dynamic relationship between higher education and the state.
Through a series of presentations, panel discussions and debates, participants considered the impact of university rankings and the internationalisation of the faculty and student body on universities and the societies that they serve.
The seminar gathered more than 120 higher education professionals from 60 different institutions in 20 countries. By attending the seminar, participants not only benefited through the sharing of knowledge and expertise; they also managed to expand their professional network through various social activities. Being able to have the opportunity to be engaged in informal conversations, establishment of new connections and strengthening of existing relationships are some of the reasons why our delegates choose to partake in our events time and again.
