The THE Awards are widely recognised as the 'Oscars of higher education'.

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.

The THE Awards are free to enter, and open to anyone involved in higher education across the UK. And in 2021, for the first time in 17 years, the THE Awards look beyond the UK to include excellence in Ireland's higher education sector too.

The shortlist is published on 9 September 2021, and the winners will be revealed at an in-person ceremony in London on 25 November 2021.

This year’s ceremony will once again serve as the celebratory finale to a two-day THE Campus Live event which will be held in separate wings of one venue, the newly refurbished Hilton London Metropole hotel. This means another break from a 17-year THE Awards tradition, with the ceremony moving away from the Grosvenor, so we have some exciting plans to celebrate that too – please do keep 24-25 November free in your diaries for what should be an unmissable event.
